APIL Guide to Costs and Funding

By Gary Barker, Mark Harvey, David Marshall

In the UK, costs and funding in personal injury cases have undergone dramatic change since the implementation of the Jackson Reforms which abolished the recoverability of ATE and BTE insurance premiums, capped solicitors success fees at 25%, and introduced QOCS DBAs/contingency fees and fixed recoverable costs. Personal injury lawyers in the UK are also facing changes on other fronts, including the extension of portals to cover EL/PL cases from July 31, 2013. This new guide provides a practical overview of the changes, explaining what impact they will have in practice, together with guidance on how to adopt successful and profitable working methods to thrive in the new UK regime.
