Sue Nash

Sue Nash has been practicing in legal costs for over 30 years and is well known for her specialist experience in both group litigation and costs budgeting. She is a former chairman of the Association of Costs Lawyers and a leading authority on costs. As a result she writes regularly for the legal press on costs-related issues.

As well as co-founding specialist costs consultancy (Group) Litigation Costs Services, she created and founded Omnia Legal Software, the first secure web-based program offering a costs budgeting and management service as an ‘add-on’.

Sue joined Elite Law Solicitors (the first Lexcel accredited costs firm) in January 2017 to not only expand their group litigation services work and provide consultancy and training on all aspects of costs but also to assist in the development of current and future offerings such as legal project management, pricing and auditing.

She has been described (by an opponent) as “a breath of fresh air” in dealing with costs negotiations and commended for her “impressive costs knowledge and attention to detail” (Alex Hutton QC)
