Costs

Members of Six Pump CourtĀ appear at detailed assessment hearings and appeals against such decisions, and are experienced in dealing with contentious costs proceedings in all contexts, including costs against planning authorities in the context of planning applications. Chambers experience includes disputes about claims for recovery of time spent by litigants in person and whether particular claims for the cost of specialist advisors in the planning sector can be properly recovered as legal advice and assistance.

Members of the team have also had experience of the approach to cost budgeting in the context of the post Jackson requirements of civil litigation and have responded to the changes in this specific area of case management with a programme of internal training so that all members of the team are able to assist effectively with the requirement of costs budgets.
