Webinar - Fixed Costs Extension with Horwich Farrelly

Wednesday, 29 November 2023
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Paul McCarthy, Partner and Head of Costs, Horwich Farrelly

Join us for an insightful seminar on the Fixed Costs Extension which came into effect on 01/10/23. This session will provide you with an overview of the key elements of the new regime, with a particular emphasis on the opportunities and risks it presents to insurers.

The key questions considered include:

  • Will this regime save insurers money?

  • What behavioural shifts are to be expected from the claimant market?

  • What are the practical consequences of the costs increase upon service of the defence?

  • How can the parties influence the complexity band?

  • Does this mark the end of Part 36 in fixed costs cases?

Don’t miss this chance to stay ahead of this evolving landscape and stay ahead of the competition. Register today and be well-prepared for the future of insurance litigation.

The session will be delivered by Paul McCarthy, Partner and Head of Costs at Horwich Farrelly. Paul also sits as a non-executive director on the Costs Lawyer Standard Board and is a member of FOIL’s Costs Sector Focus Team. Paul has extensive experience supporting insurers as they seek to navigate the ever-increasing complexity of the costs world.
