Mary Doohan

Drafting Director

Mary graduated from Liverpool University with an LLB (Hons) degree and subsequently began a career in legal costs in 2001 before deciding to join a large solicitors cost firm in 2006 during which she was instrumental in the growth of the region which at one point had over 30 fee earners across two offices of which she was the Deputy Regional Manager.

In addition to operational skills and responsibilities, Mary has extensive knowledge in all aspects of costs and predominately works drafting high value bills and working on complex cases in all areas of law.
