P. 2


Welcome to the 11th edition of Inside Law. We are once again grateful for the informative
and insightful articles by well respected authorities in their field.

Andrew Ritchie QC, of 9 Gough Square, pleads the case for more Arbitration in P.I. &
Clinical Negligence cases on Page 8 which we fully support and we are proud supporters
of PIcARBS and were very impressed with Andrew’s launch evening and attendees. Also
of 9 Gough Square, James Byrne is ably assisted by Navid Hakimaani, of Leon Kaye, in
taking a look at the court’s approach to adverse costs risk in group litigation.

Regular contributor, Tracey Benson of Slater & Gordon, details her recent case against
a major Supermarket Chain. You can find our what role Rats had to play in this EL case
on Page 10.

Of course, we have no shortage of experts ourselves here at R Costings, and amongst
them are our Costs Manager Peter Jones, Operations Manager Lee Ellison and Senior
Costs Lawyer, Steve Jepson, each of whom contributed to this edition.

On Page 4, Peter offers us the benefit of his insight into Payments on Account of Costs,
an area in which we have enjoyed great success. On Page 6, Lee looks at the recent
High Court decision in the review of Cashman v Mid-Essex Hospital Services NHS trust
and the consequences for Part 36 Costs. Meanwhile, Steve offers us a great guide to
the new format Bills of Cost and also, some invaluable insight into J Codes.

We hope you enjoy the issue and as always, your feedback is very welcome. Please
send your comments to or alternatively, visit our website at or call 01480 463499 and we will be happy to assist with any
costs issues that you may have.
