This post examines the new requirements of provisional assessment of costs under the new Jackson reforms on civil costs. The writer is critical of the new regime that will require a Judge to make an assessment of costs without even seeing the receiving party’s case file. He writes:

‘The Senior Courts Costs Office has apparently recognised that this is costs cuckoo land and will be requiring receiving parties to file their full papers in all cases (a requirement the court is permitted to impose under the rules).At first blush this is a step that both paying and receiving parties will welcome.’
