Legal Costs Draftsmen

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

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 5 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 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.
