Ujala Mahreen is a Costs Draftsperson in the Costs department at Express Solicitors, having joined the firm in August 2019.
Ujala specialises in Drafting Formal Bills for Personal Injury/Clinical Negligence cases and occasionally assists with drafting without prejudice statements when needed.
When asked what she likes best about her role, Ujala mentioned “The opportunity to draft Bills for high value/complex injury cases because it is interesting to see how these claims have progressed from start to finish compared to the normal fast track cases.”
Ujala has over 6 years’ experience in drafting bills, and pays close attention to detail, Ujala went on to explain, “whilst drafting the bills if I spot any problems/inconsistencies I don’t hesitate to approach the fee earners and flag it up.”
Ujala is work driven but believes team morale is important too, she is always available for other team members if needed and enjoys working within the Costs department.
Having started with the firm in August 2019, Ujala’s biggest achievement was drafting a Clinical Negligence Bill which was over £800,000.00 and won the Winter Incentive for the best biller in the Costs department.
