Just Costs Solicitors is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a number of key business milestones.
Just Costs was formed in 2006 by former Eversheds partner and legal costs specialist, Paul Shenton. When the firm first opened for business, Just Costs had two members of staff and a handful of clients. Today, the business is a national market leader in the field of costs and has won a number of industry awards.
To coincide with its tenth anniversary, Just Costs has analysed and released its key business milestones. Since 2006, the firm has recovered nearly £0.5 billion on behalf of 1197 clients. Its costs lawyers have received over 50,000 instructions, prepared 3144 budgets and attended 2200 hearings while the firm’s delivery drivers have covered over 500,000 miles collecting client files.
Training is an important part of Just Costs’ service offering and the firm has delivered CPD accredited training to over 15,000 legal professionals. At a time when law firms are under cash flow pressure, Just Costs’ innovative funding products have also advanced over £22 million.
Throughout its ten years in business, Just Costs has placed great emphasis on technical excellence, client service and innovation. Technology is also at the heart of the firm’s culture and Just Costs has invested £1.2 million in bespoke IT systems.
Commenting on the firm’s progress, managing director Paul Shenton said:
“It has always been our goal to become the leading costs law firm in the country.
“It is with great pride that we celebrate our tenth anniversary and I would like to thank all our loyal clients and staff for their support over the years.”
To mark its ten years in business, Just Costs is touring the UK to deliver a series of influential seminars in 10 major cities.
These half-day seminars will be presented by an expert panel of speakers including Barristers, Judges, and Costs Specialists, and are suitable for all litigation practitioners.
Important updates will be provided on changes to costs guidelines; leading case law; judicial perspectives; market trends; and the emergence of game-changing costs software.
