Updates on proportionality of costs in court proceedings

By Gwendoline Davies, Claire Acklam Anyone involved in the conduct of litigation will be aware that the ‘overriding objective’, at rule 1.1 (1) of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), requires cases to be dealt with “justly and at proportionate cost”.

Women on Boards – As they progress, businesses thrive

Long live the SFO

The Serious Fraud Office must feel it has been put through one of its own long investigations after the Davie and Graham reports. It has been acquitted, but the process will have been chastening. It is probably truer of the SFO than other bodies that there is no alternative. To have buried it in the […]
