"...I don't know how she does it, but she always recovers more than we expect."
(internal email) "...send the file to Christine Middleton - you know she'll do a good job."
"...our [Insurer] Client is absolutely delighted with the result. You achieved a fantastic saving for them. Well done."
"...[we would like] to take this opportunity once again to convey our sincere gratitude for all the help and support that you have given us... "
"Just a note to say a massive thank you for your truly professional performance yesterday. As you appreciate the outcome was a tremendous relief to me..."
Ibrahim Daud Ali, Director of Costs Department, Duncan Lewis
“Duncan Lewis is an exceptionally large law firm, and particularly is the largest UK provider of Legal Aid services. As a consequence the costs department has grown to 30 staff. I rely enormously upon the services of Christine Middleton and her team at CM Costing and have done since arriving at Duncan Lewis some 7 years ago in order to efficiently deal with those bills and issues that arise. Our working relationship continues today."
“The services CM Costing provides – bill drafting, negotiations, advocacy and advice – is second to none, the CM Costing team always goes that extra mile which assists us immensely with the bill processing and ultimate recovery of costs. CM Costing’s services are invaluable to my team. I have no hesitation recommending CM Costing to anyone involved either recovering or challenging legal costs.”
James Firman, Income Manager, Paragon Law.
“We have instructed CM Costing for many years now and have always found their service to be reliable, efficient and professional. It is clear they have a wealth of knowledge in all areas of costs. They are very approachable and are always on hand to answer any queries to help maximise our costs. They also provide a very helpful service by collecting and returning files to our office. Would not hesitate to recommend them to other firms.”
John Cato, Solicitor-Advocate, Cato Solicitors
“I would go further than saying Christine is an expert at what she does – she is a master –at least 7th Dan! Christine’s input was invaluable in a case I did in the SCCO recently. I could not have come to a view as to how the Court would treat the opponent’s Bill without her extreme attention to detail and her ability to see the wood from above, which abilities are able to operate at the same time in equal measure.”
