This webinar is aimed at litigators and fee earners dealing with claims at the lower end of the damages spectrum. An understanding of the fixed costs provisions applicable to the small claims track is vital, whether you are expecting to recover or pay those costs; failure to appreciate the application of the highly restrictive fixed costs regime could mean you are in for a shock at the end of a claim when it comes to inter partes recovery, or paying far too much to your opponent in costs, either of which will likely lead to a very unhappy client.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The scope of fixed costs on the small claims track
  • What types of costs are recoverable?
  • What happens to paid stage 1 and 2 costs under the Pre Action Protocols for Low Value Personal Injury Claims if the claim is later allocated to the small claims track?
  • In what circumstances are more than the fixed costs payable?
  • Can costs be restricted to small claims track fixed costs if the claim isn’t allocated?
  • What is the position in relation to children and protected parties?
  • Costs on allocation and reallocation
  • The relevance of rule changes made by The Civil Procedure (Amendment No. 2) Rules 2023
