Outsourcing, Uber and the Importance of Time

We all realise the importance of time. And we are all in a hurry.  And recovery of legal costs is no different.  In this fast paced- world time really has become a commodity.  Interestingly, even Uber made reference to this,  announcing  that they will be giving customers an option of paying less if they are willing to wait longer  – time really is at a premium – are you using your time to your best advantage?


Of course solicitor’s time has always been a commodity with hourly rates  billing – but here’s the thing –   if you are still preparing your own costs schedules, costs budgets, bills and estimates you might not be making the best use of your time or investing your time for the best return.


Outsourcing your legal costs is a really efficient way of making good use of your time.  With a finished file passed securely to a costs draftsman or costs lawyer to complete the costs recovery process on your behalf, your way is clear to focus on those all important new instructions.

Clarity through Questions

The key to peace of mind is having a great relationship with a firm of costs draftsmen and costs lawyers you can trust.  And that is down to asking the right questions.  We won’t work for you or quote for you unless we are clear what it is you want us to do and we ask for clarity from the outset.

If you request weekly updates, we will oblige.  If you ask for a ten day turnaround, we will oblige.  If you would like to get to know us before sending us instructions, ask us to call for a personal meeting and if you would like to ensure that your papers are returned to you in the same state they were sent – you have come to the right place!


We have over thirty years of unrivalled experience in costs and service to lawyers and have worked on every type of court bill.   We only recruit the very best people and provide them with cutting edge training. We are the only UK based national costs firm to work out of nine regional centres  – no other firm has our national reach – please call us on 0370 380 3780 if you would like us to find a be-spoke solution to your costing challenge  or if you would simply like to request a brochure.  You can find out more about our services here
