Key Features

Auto-Produce Precedent H, R & S

LAWFUSION users can auto-produce the Precedent H (cost budget), the Precedent R (the Budget Discussion Report) and the Precedent S (the new Electronic Bill of Costs) in Excel format straight from the LAWFUSION Costs Management Module.

Costing Templates

LAWFUSION users are able to customise litigation costing templates on a case-by-case basis and allocate time budgets against the ‘Cost Stages’. Users can also choose to save an existing case configuration as a template for specific ‘cost styles’.


The LAWFUSION Costs Management Module also provides functionality that enables firms to use of litigation codes (born out of the original J-Codes theory) for litigation ‘tasks’ and ‘activities’.

Traffic Light

Users are given traffic light style warnings when booking entries and allocating them against costs if they are getting near or going to exceed a limit allocated.

Intuitive & Flexible

In true LAWFUSION style the costs management module is incredibly intuitive and flexible. The software allows users to easily re-assign entries across stages and gives a graphical display of progress. Users have the option to base a new case entirely on a previous one, in terms of its cost budgets.

Time Recording & Disbursements

The LAWFUSION time recording system has been enhanced so that both private and legal aid time can to be recorded quickly against the relevant cost stage including all automated case tasks. Users can also allocate disbursements and expenses against ‘Cost Stages’.

WIP Management For High Value Cases

For firms that carry high value Work In Progress LAWFUSION offers milestone management for high value civil litigation cases. Well ahead of time the system highlights cases that could potentially slip so the firm can allocate extra resources to keep them within cost and on track. This means firms not only have the functionality to record to the precedent H sections but they can also record to their own case milestones.
