Following the voluntary Capped Costs Pilot which commenced in certain Business and Property Courts on 14 January 2019, MOJ has launched a consultation in relation to extending the use of Fixed Recoverable Costs (FRC) in Civil Cases. This follows recommendations made in Sir Rupert Jackson’s Supplemental Report on FRCs in July 2017.
The consultation is seeking interested parties’ views on the extension of FRC to (1) fast track cases and (2) intermediate cases being cases valued between £25,000 and £100,000. Click here to view the consultation for more information. The deadline to respond to the consultation is 6 June 2019. Please send details of your views to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks in advance.
