Our team is made up of skilled costs lawyers who are in demand by legal firms across Australia to prepare their cost determinations, also known as Short Form Assessments.
Our service is offered two ways:
- A one-off arrangement where we assist with negotiations in the event of a dispute arising; or
- A long-term strategic relationship where we cost all your files or a selection of your files from the commencement of your client engagement.
With either service offering you select, you can rest assured that a National Costing Lawyers’ Short Form Costs Determination will provide you with an objective and transparent assessment of the remuneration you seek, aiming to maximise recovery of costs whether it be on any of these bases:
- Solicitor and Own-Client;
- Standard (Party and Party); or
Many law firms engage our premium costing service, having all their files assessed. Allowing your files to be costed from start to finish guarantees your firm expert independent objectivity. This strategy ensures full disclosure of fees to your client and aides in determining what third-party costs are recoverable. This improves your communication and gives all parties peace of mind.
The National Costing Lawyers will exceed your expectations by providing sound practical management advice throughout the process assisting your firm to increase profitability, productivity and cost recovery.
