Lord Justice Jackson has released his further review of Civil Litigation Costs. Following the implementation of many of his previous recommendations in his 2010 report, Lord Justice Jackson’s further recommendations include:
- Implementing fixed recoverable costs for all Fast Track matters, based upon a grid with axes of complexity and litigation stage;
- Creation of an Intermediate Track (between Fast and Multi) for claims valued up to £100,000.00 which can be heard in no more than 3 days; and
- The introduction of a voluntary pilot for claims between small and medium sized enterprises for claims up to £250,000.00 where costs will be fixed and limited to no more than £80,000.00.
