Anthony E. McMahon Legal Costs Accountants are primarily concerned
with the drafting of legal costs and the Taxation/Adjudication (measurement)
of same before one of the Legal Costs Adjudicators of the High Court or before
a County Registrar in Circuit Court matters. The costs involve not
only the Solicitor's fees and expenses but also those of the Barristers
and Expert Witnesses.
Increasingly our services are sought in advisory, consultancy and
opposition work. We provide a range of services from simple telephone
advice to cost projections, Bills of Costs and formal opinions.
Costs can be measured and Adjudicated or Taxed on many different bases. We are
most frequently asked to cost litigation in contentious matters
in The Circuit Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. The District Court is different
in that some scale fees apply.
We can also measure costs between Solicitor and Client, costs in
non-contentious matters, handover of files, work in progress and
so on. If there is a legal service being provided it can be assessed
