I would not hesitate to recommend Bidwell Henderson to anyone in the legal profession, they have always gone the extra mile on all of our cases both standard and complex to help expedite our bill payment.

Heidi Murphy, KK Law

As one of our key strategic partners we have found Bidwell Henderson to be a very forward thinking and highly professional law costs drafting firm. They should be commended on their continual investment in staff training, quality controls and GDPR principles.

Specialising in billing through Tikit P4W they fit with our services portfolio perfectly. They consistently hit the mark first time – demonstrating the quality of their work and professionalism of their team, whilst more importantly improving client cashflow.

Kelly Pashley-Handford, Spencers Solicitors

I have always found their managers and draftsmen to have detailed knowledge of current costs’ law, our case management system and to be knowledgeable and personable.
The managers Ann Henderson and Rebecca Bidwell are always on hand to support their cost draftsmen, and their strategic knowledge of how to manage the Legal Aid Agency costing process is invaluable and impressive.
