Legal costing services

Arnold Costs Solicitors provide reliable and efficient costing services for the South Australian legal profession. Practicing exclusively in legal costing for almost three decades, our specialist knowledge & expertise spans South Australian and Commonwealth jurisdictions. First established in 1971 by George Salter in Melbourne, Arnold Costs Solicitors have called Adelaide home since 2010 under the experienced management of Graeme Arnold.

From July 2023, we merged with Blackstone Legal Costing, a leading national costing service, with established offices across the Eastern seaboard. While we remain proudly and distinctly South Australian, we can now offer the additional resources and interstate support Blackstone provides.

Today, the bulk of our clients are smaller suburban and country practices in all areas of law, including class actions.
