Law Costs Draftsperson

Coralie Burchell-Whittleis a Cost Lawyers/Cost Draftsmen at Cost Law Services working in Manchester office


I have been a Costs Draftsperson since 2011, mainly dealing with Family Legal Aid costs and HCCPs. I trained with a small local drafting company, in this role I was asked by a large client to become the VHCC Co-Ordinator on a consultant basis which involved managing over a hundred VHCCs including the ‘events’ pilot cases, developing processes and manuals, and providing training to fee earners. I was most recently the in-house Billing Manager for a local firm of solicitors. I was asked to take on the role after having joined the company on a temporary contract to clear a backlog of drafting. I enjoyed the challenge of setting up new billing systems and procedures. In this role I developed my knowledge of Legal Help billing, along with the CWA and CCMS systems.
