Burcher Jennings are ‘proud’ to be nominated for two awards

Leading legal costs and pricing consultancy Burcher Jennings has been shortlisted not once, but twice for the Modern Law Awards.

Established earlier this year by bringing together the expertise and experience of Jennings Costs and renowned international pricing consultancy Validatum, Burcher Jennings was shortlisted in the ‘new entrant’ category while its Market Pricing Data service was picked out by the judges in the ‘innovation’ category.

Martyn Jennings, Burcher Jennings’ CEO said:

“We are the first firm to combine leading edge expertise in pricing and costs. It is a great honour to be shortlisted by judges of the Modern Law Awards, but the endorsement which we value above all is that from our clients.

“Whereas costs draftsmen used to provide law firms a mechanical function, linked to the hourly rate at the end of a case, we can provide an integrated suite of pricing and payment options. Our clients really appreciate being able to tackle pricing and costs together. The feedback from them is so positive.”

Richard Burcher, Burcher Jennings’ chairman said:

“Our Market Pricing Data service is an innovation of which we are truly proud. It has the potential to remove the guesswork completely from pricing legal services, by providing subscribers with segmented data on the market. We are delighted that the judges have acknowledged this by shortlisting it in the ‘innovation’ category of the Modern Law Awards.

Burcher Jennings offers law firms on-site pricing training, pricing templates and guidelines, negotiation and pitch training, assistance on budgets and estimates, simplified client care documents and advice on pricing individual cases. These comprehensive solutions improve profitability and cashflow.

With fewer time and fee write-­offs, safer margins and less time lost to resolving cost complaints, firms can ensure their costs and pricing policy matches their potential.

Small claims 2013 v 2018: What has changed?

Brett Dixon APIL

Successive governments have considered increasing the small claims limit for personal injury claims, at the behest of the insurance industry lobby, from £1,000 to £5,000. But the lower limit remains unchanged because, so far, evidence and reasoning have prevailed. The last time the government tried to implement an increase was in 2013 when it concluded that it would keep the issue under consideration for implementation “when appropriate”. Nothing has happened to suppose a small claims limit of £5,000 is any more “appropriate” in 2018 than it was in 2013.
