At a time of ever decreasing profit margins you may consider that you want to keep your work in house, however that is a false economy. If you consider how much it costs for you to prepare a witness statement, the time taken for the handler to prepare the statement when they have other commitments, the cost of office space, as well as their IT and maintenance the cost is significant. In addition, there are potential redundancy payments to be made when the work slows down as well as the personal suffering that can attach to that. Using us helps drive productivity and efficiency gains with lower administration costs to your business. Our fees are based on each witness statement and if the work diminishes remember we are always available to you when the work picks up again.
