Legal costs specialists Phoenix Legal Services has joined Legal News Wales as a Community Partner, in celebration of its 20th anniversary in 2023, and to showcase its significant presence in legal costs advice, and continued growth.

Phoenix Legal Services, founded by qualified Costs Lawyer, and Vice Chair of the association of Costs Lawyers, Stephen Averill, is renowned for dealing with all types of legal cost issues. It is based in Cardiff city centre, with a further office in East Sussex, and the practice covers commercial, insurance, personal injury, medical negligence, professional negligence, Legal Aid, criminal, audit and panel management costs advice.

The firm is well-known for its bespoke training offering, and in light of the recent costs law changes – including the fixed costs regime – Phoenix Legal Services is hosting a free seminar on the 26th October 2023, in Cardiff, highlighting solutions and its advice for lawyers, and will also include a session from a Regional Costs Judge on maximising cost budgets.

On announcing the partnership with Legal News Wales, Stephen Averill, Managing Director, said:

“I am thrilled to be able to announce that Phoenix Legal Services is partnering with Legal News Wales. Given we are celebrating Phoenix’s 20th anniversary, as well as hosting our first Costs Seminar later this month, we needed to look at ways of expanding our engagement with the legal community and linking up with Legal News Wales gives us a great opportunity to do that.

“Engaging with an organisation that knows the intricacies of the legal market in Wales will help us to continue to reach out to our current clients but also create opportunities to make new connections. I have known Emma for many years and her energy and enthusiasm keeps growing. The collaboration between Phoenix Legal Services and Legal News Wales is something we are all very proud of and we hope that we can continue to share our enthusiasm with you and offer an ever-improving service on every level.”

Emma Waddingham, Editor, Legal News Wales, added:

“I have known Stephen and Phoenix Legal Services for over a decade and have always been impressed by their ability to apply highly experienced, technical knowledge in an accessible, straight-talking and tailored way for my contacts over the years.

“It is with great pleasure that we can now share their expertise more widely with our community – and tap into their holistic view of costs solutions across a multitude of legal practice areas, including our in-house network.”
