The latest from the Court of Appeal on budgeting

This crucial area of practice can have a significant impact on what you can afford to do in a case and on what you get paid at the end of it for the work you have done.

Since the introduction of budgeting there has been a tension between costs permitted under a budget and what should be subjected to a detailed assessment.

This webinar will give you everything you need to know about the current position:

  • Is a detailed assessment necessary after a budget has been set?
  • Can you depart from the budgeted costs upwards with a good reason?
  • Is a good reason enough to reduce recoverable budgeted costs?
  • What about incurred costs?
  • Is a good reason the same as a significant development?
  • If not, then what is it and which matters the most?
  • The need to monitor your budget throughout the case
  • Applying to revise a budget
  • Can the trial judge give a view on any of this?
  • Is this the last we will hear about this point?

Cost:
