This year is racing by and once more, LPG is delighted to bring you the latest ATEMatters with the freshest topics affecting the world of litigation. We start this edition with a look at the ‘dark art’ of varying costs budgets and a failed attempt by the claimant. As alluded to in a previous edition of ATEMatters, judgments regarding DBAs are growing exponentially as their use in litigation increases and thus, we conclude this month with a look at a case where once again the wording of the retainer comes under the spotlight. We have two decisions relating to Part 36 offers to highlight however, sandwiched between is a fascinating case involving ‘fundamental dishonesty’ which I’m sure any injury litigation solicitors will find most interesting.
