The Judiciary has commissioned Lord Justice Jackson to undertake a review of fixed recoverable costs. The review will consider extending the present civil fixed recoverable costs regime to make the costs of going to court more certain. It will also consider the areas of litigation where fixed costs should apply.
Anyone wishing to submit written evidence to the review should do so by 16th January 2017. Lord Justice Jackson intends to report to the Lord Chief Justice by 31 July 2017.
The review follows a commitment in the joint vision statement ‘Transforming our Courts and Tribunals’ that said: ‘We will look at options to extend fixed recoverable costs much more widely, so the costs of going to court will be clearer
and more appropriate.’
The terms of reference for the review are:
Lord Justice Jackson will formally commence his review in January 2017. However, he will be inviting written submissions on this topic immediately. He is particularly interested in hearing views on:
Written evidence or submissions to assist the review should be sent to email@example.com.
Government will undertake formal consultation on the proposed reforms, which will follow the review and consideration of its recommendations.
