Inter Partes July Update

Posted 30.08.2019

This year has already led to a large number of important and interesting judgments in the world of costs, the courts have been particularly busy in providing additional guidance on a wide ranging number of issues from the content of points of dispute and court fee remissions to the nuances and niche issues of Part 36 and even, finally judgments as to proportionality.

April 2019 represented 12 months of the electronic Bill of Costs along with further developments in guidance as to the budgeting process and the introduction of the new Precedent R. It is fair to say that this year has been very busy so far and doesn’t look like slowing down in the second half of the year.

In our Inter Partes Costs Update Costs Lawyers, Adam Fox and Robert Kerr, examine some of the key cases of 2019 and provide their comments, interpretations and thoughts as to the judgments and guidance handed down as well as a commentary as to other key developments.

As one of our key strategic partners we have found Bidwell Henderson to be a very forward thinking and highly professional law costs drafting firm. They should be commended on their continual investment in staff training, quality controls and GDPR principles.

Specialising in billing through Tikit P4W they fit with our services portfolio perfectly. They consistently hit the mark first time – demonstrating the quality of their work and professionalism of their team, whilst more importantly improving client cashflow.

Kelly Pashley-Handford, Spencers Solicitors

I have always found their managers and draftsmen to have detailed knowledge of current costs’ law, our case management system and to be knowledgeable and personable.
The managers Ann Henderson and Rebecca Bidwell are always on hand to support their cost draftsmen, and their strategic knowledge of how to manage the Legal Aid Agency costing process is invaluable and impressive.
