- Costs orders following re-amendment of particulars (Co-operative Group v Birse Development)
- Practical implications
- Defendant and third party costs
- Summary assessment or interim payment on account of costs
- Court details
DR analysis: If the other side makes an application to re-amend, it is important to ensure that all issues that you wish to put forward to the court are dealt with in the oral hearing. Raising issues in writing subsequent to this may result in you having to pay your own costs and those of the party seeking re-amendment (to the extent that the costs are incurred in dealing with those new issues). The judgment also considers whether the court should make a summary assessment of costs or an order for payment on account of costs in circumstances where there have been a number of applications which each last less than a day, but in total last more than one day.
