About Us...

Bespoke Costs Limited was formed in November 2015 as a partnership between two long-time colleagues (and friends).


Steven Sherlock began working in costs in September 2000 and began his career in the costs department of a solicitor firm in Blackpool town centre.  He went on to work for a firm of independent Costs Draftsman and now has more than 15 years experience in the costs industry which has seen a whole manner of changes to the legal landscape.  Steven has prepared Bills exceeding £1,000,000 and has actively pursued his own caseload to detailed assessment (including advocacy) with a high percentage of success for his clients.


Austin Clarke completed his degree in Business Management before entering the world of costs as a Costs Draftsman in 2008.  Since joining a firm of independent Costs Draftsman, Austin has gone on to manage his own caseload and successfully conclude several high value cases.  Austin was also actively engaged in client liaison and kept a watchful eye over the caseload of others to ensure cases were being handled efficiently and meeting client expectations.


With over 22 years experience, the partners of the firm are focused on offering a bespoke and unrivalled service to their clients.  Both Steven and Austin enjoy the “hands on” approach and know what it takes to make each and every case succeed.  It’s this personal touch that sets Bespoke Costs aside from other Costs Draftsman.


You can be certain that Bespoke Costs will handle their cases with the professionalism and competency that you would expect from Costs Draftsman with such pedigree and experience.
