Article summary

This week, the costs budgeting cases keep on coming—we have reported both Burt v Christie and Porbanderwalla v Daybridge, two decisions which address the time for filing of costs budgets. Sticking with costs budgets, Master Kay QC’s decision also provides an insight into how to deal with costs budgeting prior to the CMC itself and what happens when there is a change of circumstances in the run up to that. As part of our substantive law offering, we have also reported Xenakis, a judgment by Mrs Justice Andrews DBE, which provides a salutory warning, both to property lawyers negotiating leases as regards the timing of guarantees under such leases and the dating of the lease, as well as a warning on the matter of mitigating loss. 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. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
