About Us

Coulson Legal is Western Australia’s leading specialist costs law practice, offering services nationally in relation to all matters related to legal costs.

Coulson Legal provides a comprehensive service in relation to all legal costs matters. Whilst we are generally instructed by law practices on behalf of their clients, we also accept instructions directly from individuals and corporations.

We strive to resolve all matters in the most commercial and cost-effective manner possible. We have a strong commercial focus and are results driven. We are often engaged to assist parties during the course of their litigation, and we are often engaged before the judgment is delivered, so as to secure the most beneficial costs orders for the claiming party.

Our team of dedicated legal practitioners and paralegals work hard to achieve results, approaching matters thoroughly with the highest attention to detail. Our services include:

  1. Advice and representation in relation to the obtaining of appropriate costs orders, and the assessment of costs between party and party and solicitor and client, including drawing bills of costs, advising and appearing in relation to special costs, lump sum costs and security for costs applications, and appearing at costs assessments and costs appeals.
  2. The application of global assessments and alternative dispute resolution processes to facilitate the time and cost effective resolution of costs matters.
  3. The provision of precedents to law practices governing the solicitor and client relationship including precedent costs agreements, and the provision of various precedent packages that comply with the relevant Legal Profession Acts and Regulations,
  4. The provision of seminars to the legal profession, attendance at which will count towards CPD points.
  5. Advising law practices and legal practitioners in relation to certain professional conduct matters pertaining to costs.
