Knauer v The Ministry of Justice


Dates of case

A costs dispute arose following the conclusion of Knauer v The Ministry of Justice, the long-awaited case which provided the Supreme Court with an opportunity to correct Cookson v Knowles as to multipliers in fatal accident claims. Contested costs matters included the appellant’s entitlement to recover success fees at 100% notwithstanding the agreement between the parties that no trial costs would be recoverable, as well as a number of line by line issues. Instructed by Charles Lucas & Marshall, James Arney KC negotiated a satisfactory settlement on behalf of the appellant, consistent with the 100% uplift being recovered.
