Dispute Resolution analysis: The court made a wasted costs order against the claimant’s solicitor due to unreasonable and negligent conduct which had caused the defendant to incur unnecessary costs. The court had already made an indemnity costs order in favour of the defendant. The conduct in issue related to service of the claim form and the case serves as a clear reminder to practitioners to ensure that they understand and apply the strict service provisions in CPR 6.
