Is your law firm saving or costing you?

The company name, perhaps, says it best. The two Latin words, "Te" and "Cum" join together to mean "with you." Our many years of combined experience provide us with a unique, important understanding of legal cost factors which are otherwise intangible or difficult to detect. Our non-adversarial approach allows us to assist our clients in controlling expenses while building relationships with their attorneys. We believe the deterioration of the counsel-client relationship during the past decade has evolved through misunderstandings and can be corrected through communication and cooperation.

Our Mission

TECUM, Inc. is a unique consulting and service company specializing in the management and control of litigation costs.

Our mission is to create productive working environments and relationships between our clients - insurance carriers, self-insured companies and their defense attorneys which result in maximum cost efficiencies and the lowest possible combined claims and litigation costs.

Working with our clients and their attorneys, we help solve problems and /or improve results by: analyzing efficiencies of claims and litigation management; evaluating associated costs; and developing constructive processes which integrate control, communication and planning.
