Legal aid costs - costs draftsman

Our legal costs team has considerable experience dealing with claims for costs from the Legal Aid Agency.

As a large supplier of legal aid services ourselves we understand the requirements of legal aid billing, both from the solicitor’s perspective but also from requirements of the Legal Aid Agency. Our services are designed to minimise the risk of rejections and promote compliance with the contractual key performance indicators that are monitored by your contract manager. At the same time we understand that the work can be of lower margin so maximising the costs claims, in accordance with the Legal Aid Agency guidance and regulation, is a must.
