Cottage industry: auditors of law firm invoices (legal bill auditors)

Once a white hot growth area, back in the early 1990’s, bill auditing cooled off considerably, and some auditors shifted out of that line of work. Even so, quite a few remain, and they are veterans. Those named below have been or are involved in the bill review sub-industry.

Computer Sciences Corporation;
Devil’s Advocate (John Toothman) (See my post of May 24, 2006 on his co-authored book.);

Outside the insurance industry, bill auditors mostly show up in litigation over legal expenses charged by one company to another (See my post of Jan. 10, 2006 about a patent infringement case; and Nov. 25, 2006 about Oxycontin litigation.).
