“Louise is the most wonderful Costs Lawyer. Her attention to detail is exemplary and I have absolute trust in her judgement and advice. She also doesn’t shy away from a fight when necessary. I also hugely appreciate the fact that she understands the nature of my work and the realities that so often get overlooked when looking at costs in a clinical negligence case. Louise never does that!”
“We have used Louise for a few years now and from the first instruction, which happened to be a voluminous file spanning a number of years, to more routine matters, Louise’s eye for detail is commendable.
Despite our volumes being low, the level of service including efficiency, advice and being proactively informed assures us and our clients we are in safe hands”
“I have worked with Louise on a broad range of costs-related matters including Precedent H Costs Budgets, Precedent R Budget Discussion Reports, Bill preparation, Summary and Detailed Assessment Proceedings and Solicitor-Client Assessments for many years. I have always found her to be organised, efficient, technically knowledgeable, commercially minded and easy to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services”.
