Sadie Mortlock

Costs Drafter

Sadie has a wealth of knowledge in dealing with costs since 2012.

Sadie’s costs career began working for a small independent costs consultancy in her home town as a Trainee Costs Draftsman.

As Sadie’s career progressed, she made the move to a large independent legal costs consultancy in London, as a Legal Costs Consultant, mainly focusing on high value Clinical Negligence matters.

Most recently, Sadie was employed as an in-house Law Costs Draftsman for Slater & Gordon Lawyers, dealing with the preparation of inter-partes Bills of Costs and Costs Budgets in a variety of high value catastrophic injury, clinical negligence and personal injury claims, before joining Total Legal Solutions in April 2023.

In her spare time, Sadie enjoys travelling and spending time with her friends and family, and her dog, a Miniature Dachshund called Frank.
