"We have used SPH on professional negligence and commercial litigation matters since 2005. We specialise in the difficult cases, and our requests are never run of the mill.

SPH's Andrew Armson in particular is a font of knowledge of all things costs and his turn around speed and level of detail keep us coming back. Andrew has represented us at trial for detailed costs submissions, at SCCO, Land Tribunals and in the County Court.

SPH are a safe harbour for costs issues and it's great to be able to telephone and run issues past them. They manage to retain a great level of service alongside a good sense of humour. An important part of our wider team - rather than just an external service provider."

"We have recently used the services of SPH Costing for the first time and have no hesitation in recommending them. They are highly efficient and we will continue to use them in the future."

Northamptonshire Solicitor - March 2015

"We have used SPH now for about the last three years to do our legal costing and bills work. We have always found them to be a highly professional organisation. There is a very quick turn around in their work and we have never had to chase them for work to be returned. What we have found particularly helpful is if difficulties arise on cases that we can ring and ask them for general advice. That advice is always forthcoming and we have found it to be accurate and helpful. We would recommend them to any other law firm ."

Leeds Solicitors - April 2015

"I have used SPH Costing Services for over 10 years, submitting one or two files per week, from mundane run of the mill cases, to complex Multi Track fraud cases.

SPH are superior and without comparison, striking the balance between pragmatism and genuine expertise in the ever evolving and challenging practice of costs recovery. With outstanding negotiation and advocacy skills completmented by thorough technical expertise, I never hesitate in recommending SPH."
