About the employer

SM Legal Services are a firm of costs draftsmen based in the West Midlands, who have been providing costing services to the legal profession for nearly two decades. Although we are based in the West Midlands, we provide a nationwide legal costing service, which includes attending upon detailed assessment hearings when and where we are required to do so. In 2006, given the rapid growth of our success we became a limited company with a view to expanding our services. Since then we have continued to build a strong, reliable team and enjoy an excellent working relationship with a number of firms/fee-earners, to whom we have provided services since we were first incorporated, as well as establishing new clients along the way.
