Summary and Provisional Cost Assessment
Assessment of costs is a crucial if you are to achieve the most advantageous result for your client. This course will focus on the assessment of inter partes or between party costs namely, summary and provisional assessment and is a must for PI and civil practitioners who handle such cases.
It is no secret that judges dislike summary assessment and will look to avoid them at all costs but the provisional assessment procedure is less than ideal; an assessment by the Judge on paper only, it allows no opportunity for either party to make representations at a hearing.
During this course experienced lecturer Gary Barker will provide and discuss examples of provisional costs assessments and will offer practitioners with useful hints and tips which will improve outcome of these processes better for you, whether you are a receiving party or a paying party.
