Our services

Use our market knowledge and awareness of the tricks and pitfalls to benefit your business

For over 20 years we have advised clients and lawyers about hourly billing practices, alternative pricing arrangements and best practices in legal matter management. We have a background as cost lawyers, reviewing lawyers’ files and work practices and understanding what issues give rise to lawyer/client disputes. Our knowledge of the market and our extensive experience informs our advice on what is realistically achievable, the options and the pitfalls.

Our clients include multi-nationals, insurers, government departments and large private companies, and come from industries as diverse as finance and banking, insurance, client services, building and construction, and technology.
