LEGAL AID COSTING RETAINER
This scheme has been developed to simplify the process for firms, reducing administration and ensuring that work is delegated to costs experts where appropriate. We have found this to be particularly effective for high costs case management and for firms who require high levels of regular billing.
The charge for this is worked out on the level of costing and work required, then regularly monitored to ensure a good working relationship develops. Recoverable costing charges continue to be included in your claims under the scheme we have developed.
Administrative work can be undertaken in-house or at our Hove office remotely.
What this could include;
1 x Annual In-house training session for fee earners
High Costs Case Management
Retainers can be tailored to the requirements of your firm, so please get in touch to discuss this with us!
We regularly provide tailored in-house training seminars to solicitors to assist them with maximising profit costs. This can focus on costs law updates and/or in-house processes to ensure that profits are maximised.

Rohan Solicitors LLP
We undertake a significant amount of litigious work both at County Court and High Court levels and consequently we often find ourselves in need of assistance from competent law costs draftsmen. We have used Karen and Liz at Kutter Walters Legal Costs Limited on a number of matters and have always found them to be exceptionally professional, proficient and perhaps most importantly where our clients are concerned, cost effective. Arguments regarding legal costs are generally extremely technical and best left to the experts, it is great to have Kutter Walters on-hand to provide advice on such matters and we highly recommend using their services.
