About Us

Abacus The Law Costs Consultants prides itself on the provision of comprehensive detailed and all encompassing legal cost services to government bodies and institutions.

Through the experience it has obtained in advising the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse "The Ryan Report" over the last 5 years, and more recently in representing the State Claims Agency, Abacus The Law Costs Consultants has gained a reputation for professionalism and adopting a robust approach in settling Third Party legal costs sought against state agencies.

We are unique in our approach in that we do not accept instructions against government or state institutions.

We are conscious that in the present economic climate that ensuring a robust approach is adopted in respect of claims for Third Party legal costs, and as a consequence ensuring that only reasonable and a justifiable level of costs are paid, is of paramount importance to our Clients. When preparing Bill of Costs we are aware of the importance that clients place on ensuring that party and party costs are prepared in a timely manner and therefore we treat all instructions to recover legal costs as being urgent and this is reflected in our 'turn around' time.

As well as advising in respect of Third Party costs, we are able to carry out audits of the fees submitted by legal firms retained by you.
