GoodwinMalatesta - Fellow Members of The Association of Law Costs Draftsmen practising in compliance with the Byelaws & Code of Conduct of the ALCD.




The directors, Malcolm Goodwin and Domenico Malatesta, are

qualified costs lawyers who for many years have assisted and

advised many clients setting legal cost budgets; monitoring and

auditing legal spend and assessing legal costs in civil litigation. 

This knowledge and expertise lets us help you to manage your

legal spend saving you money and time.  We can do this in a

number of ways:


• Preparing legal cost budgets for projects and civil

litigation and ensuring that legal spend remains

within that budget;


• Assessing and reporting on your lawyers’ fees;


• Audit lawyers' invoices and reporting to you any

issues regarding the fees charged and any reductions

that should be made;


Recovering or opposing legal costs in civil litigation and

reducing cost;


This professional service can only be provided by building a team

with you, our legal costs experts and your legal service providers,

all working together to achieve your objectives at the right cost. 

The use of information technology is vital part of this service but

does not replace the professional assistance that only an

experienced costs lawyer can provided.
