  • We have over 25 years experience in legal costs
  • Our in-house Advocate has attended over 150 hearings – being successful in the majority
  • Whilst we specialise in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence claims we can deal with almost ANY costs related matter
  • Most of our cases settle within 6-8 weeks of being billed
  • We request interim payments with case law (and make applications where necessary) once the bill is served
  • We keep our case load small so can keep quality of work above quantity
  • We progress EVERY case, EVERY 48 hours
  • Once settlement is reached, WE will attain your costs cheque (and on litigated cases we will also recover 8% interest on the bill)

What our Clients say about us.

“I have been dealing with Paul and the Legal Costs Expert for the last 2 years and have been extremely impressed with the turnaround and service as a whole. The firm have taken on urgent instructions for costs budgets / formal bills and have provided a prompt and accurate service on a number of cases for me. When negotiating costs, I find Paul’s assertive and hands on approach to bring matters to a successful conclusion. I will continue to use this firm and would recommend their services.”

“We have used The Legal Costs Expert for a variety of claims and we have never been disappointed. Paul excels at staying in touch with his clients feeding back the Courts approach to costs and any legal developments. Bills are drawn very quickly on receipt and are always accurate. Paul never adopts “blanket” approaches, he assesses each case on its merits and considers all contributing factors when giving his advice. We have had great success in cost settlements without needing further court intervention but when that proves necessary, Paul’s success rate is brilliant. We would highly recommend Paul to any firm.”

“Paul has helped me on some very difficult costs matters and always given expert advice and achieved some very good settlements. He is reliable, has a wealth of knowledge, honest and always goes that extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

“Paul Fulcher at The Legal Costs Experts not only provides an efficient and professional service he also ensures that he achieves maximum costs recoveries for his clients. He is our first port of call for all our legal costings”

“I find Paul always approachable. He possesses a vast degree of expertise. To me it helps to have a costs draftsperson who has worked for both at defendant and claimant law firm. That knowledge is invaluable as I find Paul easy to get hold of him to answer any queries I may have.”

Reasons to use us

Why Use The Legal Costs Experts?

Words from our MD, Paul Fulcher…

“Unlike other firms I personally deal with every case post service of the bill and use my 20 years of costs experience and case law to achieve the best results possible. Most costs firms employ negotiators with very little experience in the field.

I am a specialist Costs Advocate having dealt with over 150 hearings and won the majority, most negotiators have never been near Court.

I spoke on the subject at the Manchester Law Society alongside the likes of Kerry Underwood, again normal negotiators would never be asked.

I train fee earners on costs and used to run a large caseload of PI work so I know what goes into a file unlike the majority of costs experts.

The best thing is I charge the same or less than others so are you convinced yet?”
