Year of Call 2019
"John is diligent, knowledgeable and bullish in all matters small or large. His assistance and advice has been invaluable on many occasions."
Adam Fenton, Compass Costs
Whenever I am asked to recommend counsel with an interest in costs, I never hesitate to recommend John Meehan. He is friendly, approachable and always makes himself available to discuss any instruction. John identifies any issues that need addressing at an early stage of instruction and advises upon them in a clear and concise way. John’s written advocacy, for example in Replies to Points of Dispute, is exceptional; it is persuasive, tenacious and demonstrates an attention to detail that ‘leaves no stone unturned’. John has an instant recall of costs law and authorities which gives my firm confidence to instruct him in all matters ranging from cases and queries about the MOJ portal to technical challenges in respect of Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) in high value clinical negligence or catastrophic injury cases. His attention to detail combined with his and encyclopaedic knowledge of costs law means John is also an exceptional advocate on detailed assessment or any costs related hearing.
