Following on from last week's publication of rule changes to the CPR, amendments to the CPR Practice Directions have now been published.
One such amendment relates to changes to Precedent H. From 1 September 2013 a substituted and amended Precedent H will be introduced and readers are reminded that they should ensure that they use an up to date version of Precedent H. These amendments are relatively minor but seek to address issues raised by users over the past 4 months since its introduction.
Since the introduction of costs budgeting and precedent H there has been much speculation as to whether the current exemptions will continue and to what extent current issues users have with the form would be exacerbated if it were to apply to cases in the Commercial Court or those over £2 million in other courts which are currently excluded (see our piece on that consultation here).
With these forthcoming amendments in mind, we thought it would be interesting to see the types of issues users are having with the form and whether the negative concerns surrounding it still apply since it has become a central aspect of litigation costs management.
