Legal costs can be an expensive component of conducting business. It is to our clients’ advantage to analyze and review all legal billings to ensure adherence to an applicable industry standard. While corporations want to compensate providers of legal services for reasonable and necessary activity, thorough vetting of billings is prudent. A professional review can provide, in detail, usable data delineating compliant, reimbursable fees and expenses, as well as flag charges that may not be in keeping with services rendered. The Legal Bill Auditing Services practice provides invoice analysis, reconciliation, and negotiation across a variety of industry sectors. A legal audit is performed by fully qualified attorneys who have both technical and professional expertise. Typical clients include insurers, reinsurers, corporations, and organizations with legal defense costs.
