“I have used the services of SPH Costing Services for around 15 years, ranging from mundane run-of-the-mill cases, to large, complex, multi track catastrophic injury and fraud cases. The team at SPH are expertly led by Shaun Higginbotham, whose passion and vast experience in the field of costs has permeated through the Company and consistently shown through in both turn-around times and ultimate outcomes.
I can say without hesitation, the services provided by SPH are by far superior and without comparison to other draftsmen I have used. SPH always strike a balance between pragmatism and cost resolution, demonstrating genuine expertise in order to maximise costs recovery, in what can only be described as the constantly challenging practice of cost recovery. Tactically, their negotiation skills are outstanding and technically, their thorough expertise and advocacy skills are second to none.
Since the introduction of cost budgeting, I have become reliant upon SPH as an integral part of the process and also forward case planning. SPH staff are highly experienced in providing accurate budgets, but I have also found them able to anticipate steps that will be required in a particular case, to make assumptions about particular cases and to anticipate potential contingencies, without being prompted.
On occasion, I will submit a file to SPH without providing any information on the case plan I intend to pursue, simply as an exercise in obtaining a second view on how the case should proceed. Indeed, on many occasions SPH will prepare a draft budget taking into account assumptions and contingencies that may not necessarily have occurred to me. By using what I would describe as the enhanced services provided by SPH, I am always confident that all possibilities have been covered.
I have no hesitation in recommending SPH to anyone who requires a truly expert service in both budgeting and cost recovery.
