The ACL Annual Costs Conference is being described as the ‘must go to’ conference for qualified Costs Lawyers and trainees alike – or anyone who wants to keep up to date with the changing world of legal costs. Bidwell Henderson’s Costs Lawyers, Robert Kerr, Adam Fox, Zobia Farooq, Mark Bidwell and Kimberley Heath, are attending the event alongside Professor Dominic Regan who is part of the Frenkel Topping Group. We were acquired by the Frenkel Topping Group last August and it is lovely to be able to go to these events to see people from other companies within the group.

Zobia Farooq will also be receiving her certificate for passing the Costs Lawyer Exam in January 2022.
