Lord Justice Jackson's review into Fixed Recoverable Costs (FRC)

Client Alerts01/08/2017

On 31 July 2017, Lord Justice Jackson published his long-awaited “Review of Civil Litigation Costs: Supplemental Report on Fixed Recoverable Costs”. He has sought to balance the many competing interests in terms of access to justice and proportionality of costs and has made recommendations as to what he considers to be reasonable costs and proposals.

It now falls to the Government to consider the report and submit their own proposals for reform for public consultation. It is likely that we shall see:

•    Government consultation - Autumn 2017

•    Government consultation response - Winter 2017 / Spring 2018

•    Civil Procedure Rule Committee review - Spring 2018 / Summer 2018

•    Reform implementation - Autumn 2018

In this client briefing, we highlight some of the key points. To view the briefing in full please click on the 'download' button below.
