Have you considered the best way to litigate with costs in mind?  Have you lost track of the way Court have handled the multitude of uncertainties arising from the Jackson Reforms.  Are you short of time but needing answers?

This Autumn,  join us as we embark on a national tour of cities hosting a series of seminars dedicated to inter partes costs and the recovery thereof.  Our first seminar will consider the impact of the Jackson Reforms,  five years on with a view to assisting Solicitors to litigate with costs in mind.  Amongst other things we will discuss CFA assignments/novation, fixed costs, Part 36, QOCS, electronic billing, costs budgeting and the costs assessment process.

Delegates will each receive a very special free gift to make life simpler and take the stress out of all fixed costs calculations!  The seminar is FREE and will also provide a networking opportunity but places are limited.
