Not specified - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

"100% of the feedback received for Gordon's last webinar, marked it as "excellent""

Making sure that the budget is, and remains, correct is an important part of a litigator’s job.  Knowing when and how a budget can be varied is an essential skill. 

This webinar looks at the law, practice and procedure in relation to applying to vary a costs budget. It looks at the rules, the precedents and the significant cases that govern applications to vary costs budgets.

  • The relevant rules
  • What is a “significant development”
  • What kind of “significant development” merits a variation to the budget
  • Why it is essential that an application is made promptly – promptness is a mandatory prerequisite
  • When does the revised budget start from
  • Why the court won’t budget retrospectively 
  • Persuading the court to exercise its discretion
