Legal Costs Draftsmen

We are a team of dedicated and experienced Legal Costs Draftsmen & Costs Lawyers who provide a completely professional and personal approach to all of your costing needs. These are the values on which Directors Martin Walsh and Christine Marsh have built Paramount Legal Costs.

After working in a larger organisation and having over 20 years’ costing experience between them, Martin and Christine saw a gap in the market to set up a company that offered a more personal approach, no matter how large or small the Client.

With the help and assistance of Martin’s wife, Karen, as Office Manager, and by recruiting a team of specialised Costs Draftsmen over the past 10 years, the company has constantly moved forward in a competitive market. However, Paramount still holds on to its original values.

Our aim at Paramount is to build a long-term business relationship with each and every Client, and to offer a completely professional yet personal, approach to all of your legal costing needs. This means tailoring our service to fit your individual needs and giving Clients a single point of contact for their work.

Using us means a significant increase in cash flow, turnaround, profitability and costs recovery. Our informative and robust advice and efficient and reliable service is second to none.
