INSIGHTS BY PENNINGTONS MANCHES: Counting the cost

05 February 2016  

Mark Lewis and Clare Arthurs report on the proposed changes to costs management

The Civil Procedure Rules Committee (CPRC) has been busy. Among other things, it has proposed amending the costs management provisions in Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) 3.12 and 13, Precedent H, and substantially adding to the Precedent H guidance notes in Practice Direction (PD) 3E. Let’s get the caveats out of the way first: there is no set date for these proposed amendments to come into force, although it is possible that they will form part of the 83rd Update to the CPR in April 2016.
