Legal Cost Services

Assessment Hearings

LPS Costs is a niche costs firm based in the North West providing inter-partes costs advice and drafting services, with particular focus on prompt turnaround times.

Remote Access Costing

This removes the hassle of instructing your draftsman, the bulkiness in transporting files, and the wasted time in printing papers/transporting them.

Bills of Costs

Solicitors are often so busy they forget to record time in the WIP records, and detailed consideration of the file notes and time records will often yield further time recordings.


Precedent Hs are the first step in ensuring you recover your full costs on the conclusion of a claim. Many fall into the trap of ‘guesstimating’ their incurred or anticipated costs.

Fixed Costs

Fixed costs were meant to be simple, but are you not getting paid on time or is the paying party not responding to your schedule of costs?

LEI Claims

There are many different types of claims funded by Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) which can sometimes result in an unsuccessful conclusion.
