Costly costs errors – professional negligence claims arising out of costs issues

10 Oct 2018, 8:30 am

It is often said that by the end of proceedings the costs in issue are as important or more important to the parties than the dispute itself. As a consequence, negligence in the handling of costs can be an expensive mistake for solicitors.

PJ Kirby QC and Martyn Griffiths will address the costs issues that can result in claims of professional negligence. In particular they will cover the principles and latest case law in relation to:

  • Advising on the availability of legal expenses insurance
  • Advising in relation to third party funding
  • Negligence in relation to costs budgeting
  • Negligence in relation to CFAs

They will also give practical hints and tips relating to the conduct of professional negligence actions that might arise out of these issues.
