Jaggards Costs Conference 2009 Review
Jaggards hosted its sixth annual costs conference in London on the 11th June 2009.
Jaggards and supervising solicitors, McCullagh & Co briefed delegates with the latest costs law updates and developments in this CPD accredited event.
Adrian Jaggard, CEO of Jaggards opened with a frontline update on the incoming Ministry of Justice reforms claims process. Robert Carter, Principal of McCullagh & Co gave a much anticipated presentation entitled ‘Judging Jackson: Jackson LJ’s Interim Report on Costs’. David Cooper, Legal Executive and Costs Lawyer, McCullagh & Co discussed ‘Costs Estimates and Costs Capping’; Matthew Hoe, Legal Director of Jaggards and Test Litigator at McCullagh & Co took us through the ‘Latest Developments in Costs Litigation’; and Stephen Hines, Solicitor at McCullagh & Co concluded the presentations with a piece on ‘Detailed Assessment Hearings: The Front Line’.
Special thanks go to our two guest speakers: District Judge Duerden, Regional Costs Judge from Bury County Court, who charmed the audience with his anecdotes of costs and his views as a regional costs judge; and Andrew Hogan, Barrister from Ropewalk Chambers, Nottingham, who spoke about what happens ‘When an ATE Insurer Refuses to Pay Out’. Their contributions, as were all speakers’ presentations, were very well received and served as an ideal ‘shot in the arm’, hopefully to all delegates.
Feedback was universally positive and Judge Duerden has commented:
“I was very impressed by the quality of the presentations and the clear grasp of the subject of all the other speakers. It is most encouraging to know that there is such talent around in the field of costs. You are to be congratulated for putting on such a high standard conference and I am pleased to be associated with it.”
