When are Fixed Costs not Fixed Costs?

11th February 2016

James Laughland appears today in the Court of Appeal

James Laughland, instructed by Horwich Farrelly, appears today in the Court of Appeal for the insurers in two expedited appeals listed before the Master of the Rolls. The issue concerns whether the award of indemnity costs to a Claimant who wins on their Part 36 offer at trial secures for the Claimant something other than the Fixed Costs prescribed by Part 45. The insurers are arguing that fixed costs remain applicable and that such Claimants still retain the other part 36 enhancements.
