The Jackson reforms to civil litigation are coming into force in April.
These changes impact on cases that are undertaken on a conditional fee basis. For example, you will no longer be able to claim back any insurance premium in connection with so-called “after the event” insurance – even if you win. Such premiums can be substantial.
You need to get your claims in quickly and issued before April to be certain as to this recoverability point.
There are many more change to the Rules to consider. For more information contact mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
