More Cost-Efficient Civil Litigation In England & Wales

Arnold & Porter Advisory

On 1 April 2013, civil litigation in the English Courts will be radically reformed. These changes will reduce the risk of unanticipated costs and will add new tactical dimensions to litigation in the English Courts.

The two key areas of change are (1) a new costs management scheme, which gives the Court greater advance control over the costs which can be recovered from the losing party by the party which wins the litigation and (2) increased flexibility in the funding of litigation, which promotes the sharing of risk between clients and their legal advisors.
