ACL Services has been trusted by its client since 2016
Paul is a costs guru. If he doesn’t know it, it isn’t worth knowing. He is usually the only person at a CCMC who understands the budgets and can add up. Masters, trust him because he quickly demonstrates his knowledge of the detail and Defendants can’t keep up because he knows their budgets better than they do. He always sees the bigger picture – namely to secure the best budget we can. On Detailed Assessment hearings, he is focused, well prepared and pragmatic. The Cost Judges trust him because he is on top of the papers and knows the key issues. He is fun, hardworking, 100% reliable and always a sensible sounding board. I don’t think I could get through a CCMC or a DA without him…..

I have worked with Paul for many years. He has always got up to speed on my cases quickly, taking care to properly understand them so that he contributes in a directed and commercial way. In one long-running case, he stepped in, and out, as required. His contributions were of great value, literally, but also to the overall conduct of the case – all to the advantage of the principal client. I know I can rely on him.
Jason HunterPARTNER OF RUSSELL-COOKE LLP
I have been instructing Paul for many years. The service ACL provide is truly excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend him to deal with all your costs matters. What makes him stand out for me is that he always makes himself available to deal with any queries over and above just preparing bills and budgets. He will always be my 'go to' costs lawyer.
