Nelson Guest & Partners
I have been involved in Legal Costs for over 20 years, during which I have worked in all aspects of Legal Costs for both Claimant, Defendant and legal aid. At Fisher Meredith LLP, I became an ‘expert’ in high cost cases, being involved in all aspects from the case plan to the final claims. This resulted in my promotion to the position of Head of Costs.
I always ensure prompt, efficient billing to facilitate the correct management of cashflow. I maintain a close working relationship with all fee earners and managers to ensure that WIP is converted to maximum costs.
Legal costs is a highly specialised and complex area and it is my responsibility to ensure that everybody in the practice applies the correct costs on each file. Ensuring that the correct fees are accrued and WIP is disposed of in a timely fashion maintains maximum control and contributes to a stable and profitable company.
Throughout my career I have assisted with the development of legal documentation, workflow management and the resolution of legal issues.
