We understand how important it is to be able to manage costs within a legal practice. That's why we offer comprehensive cost services including budgeting, benchmarking, analysis of work in progress and flexible working practices.
Auditing and Benchmarking
We understand that the key to running a successful legal practice is ensuring that you maximise the budget for your services. That's why we offer a full auditing and benchmarking service.
When you hire us to perform and audit, one of our qualified law cost draftsmen will analyse a selection of files and then provide you with a benchmark figure. This can be done for a part of a case, or for each individual phase of a case.
We then use these benchmarks to prepare future budgets. The benchmarks can also be used to provide empirical evidence in support of budgets during cost management conferences.
Because all of our cost draftsmen are experienced, we are uniquely placed to prepare accurate and realistic cost budgets. We have national experience, which means that we are able to provide you with high quality of service regardless of where you and the case is based within England and Wales.
We are more than happy to work in-house at your offices when dealing with costs and budgets if required.
Analysis of work in progress
If you are working on a particularly complex case, Cheshire Law Costs can supply an experienced member of our team to work on an ongoing basis to ensure that costs incurred remain within the agreed budget.
Should it become apparent that the budget will be exceeded we can provide expert advice quickly and accurately about the necessary revisions, and update the budget accordingly.
