This week we reported on a number of cases including Willis, a notable costs budgeting decision in which Coulson J looked at simple and practical ways of considering the issue of proportionality of costs which all practitioners should apply when completing a costs budget. As well as our analysis of that case, do take a look at our helpful checklists dealing with costs budgeting which we have amended as a result. We have also reported the Court of Appeal’s decision in Credit Suisse in which it held that it was wrong to allow a party to base its summary judgment application on an unpleaded case. We continue to focus on providing a roundup of key news stories from the last week highlighting their practical implications as well as updating our Practice Notes to ensure you are kept up to date.
