In the light of recent changes in the costs world, brought about by the implementation of the Jackson reforms, and recognising the need to provide their clients with a wider range of expertise, two established companies, J Murphy Law Costs Consultants Limited and DW Costs Limited, combined in September 2014 to form Acura Costs Limited.
“In union, there is strength” - Aesop
The core practice of DW Costs centres around high value and complex commercial cases, with strong links to many leading law firms and niche practices. In contrast, the key practice areas of J Murphy relates to personal injury and industrial disease litigation for a range of clients, mainly shipping related, including the P & I insurance market, independent shipping companies (through their solicitors and by way of direct instructions), a leading ABS, together with a claims management company for a multi-national oil company.
The combined broader base of Acura Costs Limited ensures that our clients are now better served and we are able to deal with a wider range of instructions and to offer our clients a greater level of expertise.
