Fixed recoverable costs 6 months in
Available from: 13/03/2024
October 2023 saw the creation of the ‘intermediate track’ bringing with it fixed recoverable costs. A vast array of claims worth up to £100,000 are captured by the changes.
In this webinar, Professor Dominic Regan will investigate the problems identified by practitioners so far, including around the transitional provisions for cases that began before 1 October, and explain the rule changes that are already set to come into force in April 2024 – which will at least lead to lawyers receiving higher fees.
Topics covered include:
- The inherent uncertainty where matters settle at Stage 1
- How easy is it to escape the ‘track’
- Clinical negligence actions
- November 2023 revised guidance from the Legal Ombudsman
