Where it all Started

QICS was established in 1989 by Alan Adrian after learning the trade at Law Costs Pty Ltd from 1981. In 2009 Alan acquired Law Costs with his brother, Gary Adrian, joining forces to become a powerhouse of knowledge and experience. By drawing upon this wealth of experience and knowledge QICS has grown to be one of the longest and most established Legal Costs Consulting firms in Australia.
