Sterling Costs are consummate professionals and are meticulous in their preparation of advice and the drafting of bills on matters of costs. They have always achieved very high levels of costs against bills either through negotiation or detailed assessment. They are also lightening quick in responding to initial instructions. What’s not to like?!

We first instructed Sterling Costs in 2010 and have not looked back. Their service is first class and nothing ever seems too much trouble. I am always impressed by the speed at which they provide my Bills of Costs for approval and would not hesitate in recommending them.

Lennons Solicitors

We have worked with Sterling Costs for a number of years and are particularly impressed with the speed at which accurate work is produced and also the excellent working relationship we have with them. Sterling offer a personal service with a wealth of knowledge in what is a very tricky area of billing. We are always grateful for their advice and for them going the extra mile. We would not hesitate to recommend them.


We have instructed Sterling on a number of occasions to prepare a schedule of costs and negotiate costs on our behalf. We have always found that they are prompt, professional and approachable. The turnaround time for providing the schedule was always done quick and we were always kept updated throughout the progress of the negotiations. A good settlement was always achieved following the negotiations. We would most definitely recommend Sterling Costs.

We used various costs draftsmen firms over the years before settling on Sterling and we have no intention of going elsewhere again. Quick, efficient, high recovery rate but also extremely approachable and friendly.

Field Overell LLP

We found in Sterling Cost a company genuinely interested in handling a case fairly and not seeing it as an opportunity to “milk it for all it’s worth”. Attention to details and genuine intention to do the best for the case was obvious at all times. Charges were fair, proportionate and very reasonable and we never at any time felt that we were been misled. Sadly I could not say this in my previous dealings with other similar companies.

A very professional, competent company with a human face, Thank you very much Sterling. We will gladly recommend your services any day to anyone. Please do not hesitate to ask if we can do just that if anyone asks for a recommendation.
