Introducing Legal Costs Online (Pty) Ltd incorporating Matthys J Lourens Legal Costs Consultants CC - since 1996
Legal Costs Online (Pty) Ltd is a technology driven company specialising as experts in legal costs in South Africa and the UK.
We are not an attorney firm and we do not represent clients as legal representatives. We are employed by our clients purely as legal costs experts.
Whenever we attend proceedings in our capacity as legal costs experts we are accompanied by an admitted practicing attorney/counsel with the right of appearance in all forums and in all provinces of South Africa. We also employ 12 costs "draftsmen" and two ex-Taxing Masters of the High Court/Arbitration Forum.
We serve several large private companies, as well as most of the leading attorney firms throughout South Africa.
Our company has several excellent references of previous large legal costs instructions completed such as the costs involved in the Tollgate saga, Club Mykonos Langebaan Debenture Holders, multiple Metrorail matters, complex motor vehicle accident claims, intricate commercial contracts, complex maritime matters etc.
We are proud members of the Board of Legal Costs Mediators - www.blcm.co.za
