Harmans Costs consolidates with Lauben deal

Harmans Costs are pleased to announce the acquisition of Lauben Legal Services and appointment of Jim Lines as Partner.

Chesham-based Lauben Legal Services is a costs drafting business set up in 1994 by Costs Lawyer Jim Lines. Lauben deal with all areas of Civil Costs – clinical negligence, personal injury, dispute resolution, Court of Protection and publicly funded costs, particularly children and family matters and including high costs case plans. Lauben provides a full costs service to its clients, most of whom have been using their services for over 15 years and some since Lauben’s inception.

Matthew Harman, partner, said: “We are delighted to complete the Lauben deal and are looking forward to working alongside Jim and his consultants. Harmans are very much focused on strengthening our already significant costs experience this year and the acquisition of Lauben, as well as the recent addition of Costs Lawyer Mark Brown to the Chelmsford office, will certainly help us achieve our targets in 2014.”

Working out of Harmans’ Aylesbury office, Jim and his consultants will be working alongside Partners Matthew Harman, Mary Collins, John Moss and Steve Jones and will add weight to Harmans’ growing client base.

Only last month Harmans welcomed Mark Brown to the Harmans team who brings 17 years of costing experience to their Chelmsford office. The latest acquisition of Lauben shows their continued intent to strengthen the company and add even more expertise across their costing team.
