Abacus The Law Costs Consultants was formed to provide comprehensive, detailed and wide ranging legal costs services to blue chip clients, including solicitors firms, insurers, accountants and other businesses.

Abacus is a proactive and dynamic specialist legal costs practice established by Michael Monaghan and Nick Portch, who were both previously Directors of one of the largest independent legal costs firms.

The company comprises a core team of six Senior Costs Consultants, of whom five are qualified Costs Lawyers and the other is a former Solicitor and Partner in a Nottingham Law Firm. The team has experience in dealing with legal costs spanning several decades, which puts Abacus in a strong position when advising clients on this ever changing aspect of the legal profession.

The company is based in the City of London, enabling the provision of costing services to a client base located predominantly in the City and Central London. The office location facilitates the provision of assistance to clients at short notice, including urgent attendance at hearings and at clients’ offices as necessary.

At Abacus we are committed to providing clear and concise advice on legal costs with the minimum of fuss, and to always being on hand to assist clients whenever the need arises.
