The recent Court of Appeal (and eagerly awaited Supreme Court) decision in Ho v Adelekun [2020} EWCA Civ 517 relating to costs set off in QOCS cases. We are delighted to welcome Adam Burrell from DAC Breachcoft where he is a partner and Head of Costs.

Alongside Adam, Christopher Perry is joined by Charles Crow and Richard McLoughlin, all members of the Costs and Litigation Funding team here at No5. In part one, we cover remote hearings, early neutral evaluation and mediation in costs cases and the fairly recent Court of Appeal (and eagerly waited Supreme Court decision) in Ho v Adelekun relating to costs set off in QOCS cases.

It that whets your appetite for more, or perhaps doesn’t rock your boat, please don’t forget to watch part two where we discuss solicitor/client assessments, in particular the success fee challenges following Herbert v HH Law. We also delve into the new costs budgeting changes, the new Precedent T concerning variation of costs budgets coming in to force on 1st October 2020.
