A Question Time on Costs 28th April 2016

On 28th April 2016 I am coming to Manchester with some of my colleagues, to undertake a “question time on costs” at the Lowry from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

This will be a panel led discussion on topical issues including fixed costs, costs budgeting, assignment of CFAs, digital billing and solicitor/own client disputes followed by wine and canapés.

The members of Ropewalk Chambers’ Costs Team attending as well as myself will be  Andrew Lyons, Shilpa Shah, Jonathan Owen, Tom Carter and Nikhil Arora.

Questions for the panel, submitted prior to the event, are welcomed (see the booking form).

The seminar attracts two SRA continuing professional development points at advanced level.

Places are strictly limited, so early booking is recommended.

There is no charge to delegates for this event.

  1. Hello Andrew,
    I am actually writing as I wanted your opinion as my fellow colleagues and I have been unable to agree on what is required by courts on request of a breakdown of pre-action and issue/pleadings costs of each party by litigation phase.

    Some have said that this is just a breakdown of costs similar to a statement/n260 of the pre action and issue pleadings phase, other say it is not that it is actually a breakdown of costs pre and post issue and takes into account all work incurred be it in pre action, expert reports, witness statements etc- could you kindly comment on your experience
