James v Ireland


Practice Areas


Cases Citation

[2015] EWHC 1259 (QB)

Successful costs appeal, establishing that a trial had not “commenced” for the purpose of triggering a 100% fixed uplift, despite the parties, their witnesses and advocates attending for 1.5 days on the date fixed for trial. Successive adjournment applications were found to have been merely procedural, and did not constitute a trial.
