Costs and Funding – latest developments in 2021

Recorded on: 14/06/2021

Covid has not stopped a string of important decisions in the world of costs and funding, as well as rule changes, so far this year. Professor Dominic Regan, special adviser to the Association of Costs Lawyers, will identify and explain the detail and significance of these developments. This webinar will look at:

  • The amendment to the proportionality rule to take account of vulnerability
  • The new provision in CPR 36.5 dealing with offers and interest after the expiry of the relevant period, so-called Calonne clauses
  • The impact of forthcoming ADR reforms
  • Another way around CPR 3.14 where a budget has not been filed in time
  • Pallett and the ‘day 22 manoeuvre’, putting costs in play by accepting a part 36 offer one day late
  • The importance of wording part 36 offers correctly after the Court of Appeal ruling in Seabrook
  • Important new guidance in the 2021 White Book
  • Masten and default costs certificates – the dangers of letting attention to costs drift
  • The latest on reform of the guideline hourly rates
  • The future of damages-based agreements after the Court of Appeal ruling in Lexlaw
