Experience – the history of tcprichings

TCPRichings has a long history having developed following a series of mergers, takeovers and acquisitions. It can trace its heritage back to 1960, when the firm of Wildman Barnes & Co was created. Wildman Barnes & Co operated in London and grew over the next 20 years to be a highly reputable costs consultancy.

Shortly thereafter, Jim Richings began his career with the City firm Slaughter & May, establishing his own freelance practice some 10 years later. Over time that practice evolved into Richings Ltd becoming a leading costs consultancy in London and the South East.

Wildman Barnes & Co continued to prosper, merging with Service to Lawyers Costs. During the 1990s, Services to Lawyers Costs acquired the business of Legaserve and Mansfield Bills of Costs, adopting the name The Costs Partnership in 1999.

The tradition of growth and development has continued with the formation of TCPRichings in 2011.
