Case Managing High Conflict Cases  

• “Costs in financial remedy proceedings”
Seema Kansal – (Barrister 33 Bedford Row)
Costs can be a difficult issue in financial proceedings, not least because of the discretion the courts have. This topic will look at the basis for costs awards in both interim and final hearing stages and the attitude the courts nowadays are adopting. It will also remind you of the way you can protect yourself against a costs award and when you can apply for costs.
