Happy New Year and welcome to the first edition of #ATEMatters of 2024 bringing you our take on the latest key decisions and judgments affecting the world of litigation and funding.
Boodia v Richard Slade is the latest in a long running solicitor/client costs saga and the latest High Court decision addresses the client’s latest challenge. In Sellers v Simpkins. A CFA ‘Lite’ is under the spotlight and whether a costs cap remains applicable if the client terminates the retainer. The Court’s decision on the potential costs consequences as a result of the relationship between Part 36 and s70 costs assessment is well worth a look and then we finish this month with a judgment on a case your injury litigation colleagues may be interested in.
As always, do please get in touch if you have any queries or require assistance on anything to do with ATE insurance and/or funding.
If you or any of your colleagues are in the market for ATE insurance for Commercial, Financial Mis-Selling or Housing Disrepair claims, we can help.
