Petyt: exciting vision

Costs lawyer Colin Key and costs draftsman Carl Bird have joined the main London office of Kain Knight, one the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers.

Colin joins from Just Costs Solicitors and Carl from Meruit Costs. Their work will focus mainly on high-value commercial litigation, multi-track clinical negligence and personal injury. They are two of a number of new Kain Knight appointments in recent months.

Kain Knight continues to recruit at all levels as part of a business expansion strategy through organic and acquisitive growth.

Peter Petyt, Kain Knight’s chief executive officer, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Colin Key and Carl Bird to our growing London operation. It is testament to the exciting vision and culture developing at Kain Knight that we are receiving so many expressions of interest to work with us.

“The Kain Knight group continues to develop a wide range of services to complement our leading position in the legal costs industry.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
