1. The predictable costs regime
This seminar is designed to ensure that your fee earners understand the possible issues and pitfalls surrounding the fixed recoverable costs regime under Part 45 of the Civil Procedure Rules.
Most practitioners do not appreciate the number of issues that can arise out of the simple interpretation of the rules, and can easily be caught out. For instance:• Do you know when a multi track value case can fall within the regime?
• Do you know when the regime still applies even though proceedings have been issued?
• Do you know when you can still apply the regime even though the settlement is within the small claims limits?
This seminar will ensure that all fee earners understand exactly when the regime applies, and when it does not through a series of worked examples.
Do you give in if the insurers won’t pay your disbursements in full or do you issue? This seminar will also look at what to do when there is a dispute, and will provide fee earners with precedents and a procedure for issuing Part 8 proceedings where there is a dispute, and thus ensuring you maximise the costs you can recover per case.
2. Everything the busy practitioner needs to know about costs
This seminar is designed to arm the busy practitioner with everything they need to know about costs. It includes guidance and tips to help maximise the costs on every case.
It includes worked examples to demonstrate the importance of giving counsel detailed instructions when briefing counsel to attend a hearing, in particular a fast track trial. Many barristers do not know enough about costs. If you do not point them in the right direction and give them the ammunition they need you risk losing out when the costs are summarily assessed.
3. Costs update seminar
A review of recent cases and developments in the world of costs, and how they affect you.
