Remote cost law assistance


As the only paperless costs law firm in England and Wales, we pride ourselves on our teams’ ability to work remotely.

Rather than spending excessive time arranging large files, we choose to transfer information electronically. All our clients have their own electronic file; therefore, their personal information is extremely safe.

Our paperless working method also works effectively when our team work from home. Due to this, we have been able to ensure that the same high standard of work was upheld during the difficulties in the past year.

Bills of Costs

Following the settlement of your matter, we can be on hand to prepare comprehensive bills of costs. In order to prepare this, we will require electronic access to your file. This will allow us to analyse your time records and incurred costs and then compile the information into the bill. The paying party will scrutinize the bill of costs; therefore, it is crucial that no errors are made in the drafting process.

We also employ a 5 working day SLA turnaround, ensuring that we prepare documents swiftly and do not cause any unnecessary delays.

In multi track matters, we can devise an electronic bill of costs. These are utilized in this type of case as they allow quick filtration between budget phases, work types, tasks and activities. 

When hearings are required, we can provide an advocate who is well equipped with the skills to give effective advice in a Court setting.

Costs Budgets


The team of expert costs draftsman are highly experienced in multi track matters and the preparation of costs budgets, also known as Precedent H’s. When preparing this document, we will carefully consider who will be working on the case, their hourly rates and the future experts that may be required. It is vital that an experienced costs expert is employed to prepare a costs budget. This is because the Court may impose sanctions if the costs budget contrasts the bill of costs prepared upon settlement of the matter.

If your case is more complex, we can utilize the skills of our Costs Lawyer. As a registered CLSB and ACL Costs Lawyer, they can be relied upon to prepare legal documents to the highest degree of accuracy.
