Nicholas Bacon is a leading silk in his specialised field of costs. He has appeared in practically all of the most important costs and funding cases in recent years. His costs practice is well juxtaposed to his professional negligence work with particular emphasis on solicitors’ negligence, both for and against solicitors. This includes solicitors’ regulatory and disciplinary work.
Chambers and Partners 2015 says of Nicholas “If you want an absolute costs specialist silk then there’s only Nick Bacon.” “His strength above everything else, lies in his ability to identify what success means in a job and ensuring that he achieves it. He’s very down to earth, extremely easy to work with and, for somebody who is a leader in the field, he’s also very accessible.”
He has described been as, “a guru on costs matters”, “top of the tree in this field” and “one of the go-to people” at the Costs Bar . Praised for his “huge knowledge of costs authorities“, “he can always arrest the attention of the judge.” Chambers and Partners 2014 comment;
“He is definitely a leading silk in the field. To that end, you know when you hire him, you’ve got the guy.“
