I am a Partner at graham + bull, costs lawyers & costs assessors, who provide legal costing servcies and advice regarding the Law of Costs to law firms and government departments. I have practised exclusively in the law of costs area since 1996, and I am a Costs Assessor on the Register of Costs Assessors appointed by the Supreme Court of Queensland.
I attend at the Sunshine Coast each week to assess files, either at our office in Ocean Street, Maroochydore or at law firms on an in-house basis, and to confer with lawyers to assist in recovering costs from their clients, as well as providing greater billing transparency for the law firms. I have been engaged to provide expert evidence in Security for Costs matters and legal costs disputes on more than 80 occasions since 1996.
We offer a FREE "review of costs agreements and disclosure notices service" for lawyers, together with our observations and comments regarding compliance with the relevant legislation.
