"We have worked with Paragon for many years now and I can honestly say that I would not look to instruct any other firm to deal with our clients’ costs issues. Nick and his team are very knowledgeable and always on hand to assist. On top of this, they are very personable and a pleasure to work with, which is always important to us." John Carter, Partner (BPE Solicitors)

"Nick and his team are simply the best and I would not use any other costs lawyer! They are prompt in responding to queries and are very accessible. Importantly, they never leave me sweating on a deadline! Nick especially is very quick to get to grips with the issues in the case and my finance file, in order produce sensible documents. He is an extremely competent and thorough advocate, quickly getting the Master on side at hearings. He is pragmatic in his approach and knows when to take points. I dread the day Paragon are conflicted on a case!" Katie Hickman, Partner (VWV)

"Paragon have been a complete treat to work with. They have been extremely knowledgeable, efficient and reliable. Last but not least, they are a genuine pleasure to speak with on any of our matters." Dominic Robson, Associate (TLT LLP)

"Paragon Costs are superb. They provide clear, concise and accurate advice at a very reasonable cost. They are very approachable and are always willing to offer help and support, even on difficult and unusual cases and where they are not yet formally instructed. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for costs advice." Mushtaq Ahmed-Khan, Lead Lawyer (City of Wolverhampton Council)

"I regularly appoint Paragon Costs as they are able to cut through complex issues succinctly and provide clear and concise advice. I am also comfortable using them on more straightforward matters, as they are adept at providing commercial solutions to matters which otherwise could soon be uneconomical. With Nick Lee at the head of the company, you always know that the knowledge amongst draftspersons will be at a very high level." Jordan Ridd, Technical Claims Manager (ARAG)

"We instructed Nick from Paragon Costs for a Detailed Assessment hearing but the support and guidance he gave to us in the months leading up to it was invaluable. Nick is very knowledgeable on costs and was able to think on his feet and refer to case law in support of unexpected submissions he had to make in response to points that were raised by the opponent. I have approached Paragon since for guidance on some other cost related matters and will certainly instruct again" Francesca Rogers, Associate (DAS Law)

"I have now instructed Nicholas Lee and his team from Paragon on a number of occasions, and will continue to do so. Not only are they at the top of their game in terms of technical knowledge, but they are also incredibly approachable and easy to talk to. I would recommend Paragon wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a reliable, thorough and cost effective service." Amelia Williams, Senior Associate (Steele Raymond LLP)

"Paragon Costs are the go to costs lawyers. Helmed by the excellent Nicholas Lee, their costs lawyers are pro-active, knowledgeable and always provide an excellent service second to none. The speed at which they can turn around complex matters is impressive and the detail and thought that goes into their documents always put me and my clients in a pole position when it comes to arguments over costs." Richard Gore, Partner (Shakespeare Martineau)

"I know that I can rely on Nick and his team. Paragon is efficient, friendly and cost effective. In addition, Nick leads a team of highly competent costs lawyers with a first class knowledge of their subject. I have no hesitation in using or recommending Paragon." Andrew Herridge, Partner (Tanners Solicitors LLP)

"We have found Paragon provide a consistently high level of client care and service. Technical expertise is always assumed, but in this case is certainly delivered. They are extremely prompt in their responses to all communications. They ensure matters are dealt with in a timely manner. Lucy Hodgkins is very conscientious, able quickly to assimilate the facts of the case and is proactive in her approach. On a particularly active and urgent matter where we needed to retain the original files and they were too bulky to copy, Lucy travelled from Bristol to Maidstone at short notice to prepare a costs budget from our original files. Lucy is prepared to go the extra mile. Partner, Civil Litigation

Your firm's precedent H are among the best that we see - and you may quote me on that. Senior Solicitor, Personal Injury 

Paragon Costs always demonstrate a good understanding of the issues involved and offer realistic, practical advice. Solicitor, Disease Claims (PI)

We switched to Paragon from another costs firm about six months ago, and have seen a marked improvement in both our costs recovery rates and how quickly we receive payment. They work to short timescales and come in on budget. They are very willing to provide training to our team and to advice on an ad hoc basis. Highly recommended. Senior Associate (Insurance Litigation)

I have instructed Paragon and, in particular, Lucy Baldwin and Nick Lee on a number of complicated and lengthy matters. Both have dealt with matters efficiently and commercially so as to achieve the best available solution for the client. Partner (Commercial)

Thanks Nick – the clients are happy and pleased to be able to move on. Massive thanks for your guidance on this one - it has been fantastic having your input and expertise on call at all times. Partner (Commercial litigation)

After a brief meeting with Nick and Claire it was very apparent that these were the guys to trust. Litigant in Person

The compassion and professionalism that both Nick and Claire displayed throughout our entire involvement with them was second to none. Litigant in Person
