Law Costs Consultants

The most important factor in legal costs is to achieve a highly positive outcome in the swiftest time possible. This goal of achieving favourable results, either for receiving or paying parties, is at the centre of every service we provide. The less time our clients spend involved in legal costs the better and we take on this burden to allow their expertise to be utilised elsewhere.

In order for Aestima to achieve this level of service, we adhere to several key principles:


Our pragmatic approach to legal costs ensures that the best possible outcome is achieved in every case. Our costs consultants are able to consistently prepare robust documents that have been carefully and sensibly compiled.


Careful scrutiny of files and attention to detail ensures an accurate document is prepared. By preparing accurate documents first time that are difficult to oppose, our costs consultants are able to ensure a swifter resolution to cases.


The breadth of knowledge at Aestima enables us to provide services to clients across multiple sectors. This comprehensive approach is possible thanks to our costs consultants’ dedication to ongoing training and growth.



The Aestima team are specialists in the full range of law costs services, from costs budgeting to advocacy in the Supreme Court.
