Fixed recoverable costs—Lord Justice Jackson workshop (January 2017)

Fixed recoverable costs—Lord Justice Jackson workshop (January 2017)

Do you deal with fast track claims or multi-track claims up to £250,000, and have views on the proposed extension of the fixed costs regime?

As part of the consultation phase for his report on fixed recoverable costs, Lord Justice Jackson will be holding a small London workshop session, from 6pm on Tuesday 10 January 2017, expressly focused on obtaining feedback from litigants who have brought (non-personal injury) claims in the fast-track, or claims of up to about £250,000 in the multi-track.

The aim is for lawyers to attend with one or two clients who would be willing to talk about their experiences.

It will be particularly helpful if attendees have seen claims go through the entire litigation process to trial and Jackson LJ hopes to have more clients present than lawyers.
