Goodwin Malatesta is a firm of legal costs experts providing a comprehensive service to a wide range of clients.

The firm evolved from a niche practice providing assistance in relation to claims for costs arising out of clinical and professional negligence litigation. By extending our core experience and skills the practice today provides prompt and cost effective advice on all aspects of legal costs ranging from minor value claims through to large scale commercial disputes.

Between them our costs lawyers have over 100 years experience dealing with all aspects of legal costs.  We constantly strive to provide our clients with high quality advice and this is achieved by fully utilising the resources available, including contemporary information technology and an extensive legal costs library.

Ultimately our goal is to provide an accurate and cost effective service that meets our clients' needs within the timescale required. 

Our standard charging rates are £90.00 to £170.00 per hour depending on the size and complexity of the case. The preparation of bills of costs can also be charged at 6.5% of the profit costs as drawn.
