WHAT TO DO IF THE DEFENDANT MAKES AN EARLY PART 36 OFFER: WEBINAR 30th MARCH 2023

The changes to the rules as to the set off of QOCS  for action issued on or after the 6th April 2023 makes the proper assessment of Part 36 offers of even more importance. Not only will the costs incurred after the offer not be recoverable, the defendant’s costs will be set off against those costs and damages that could be recovered.

The making of an early Part 36 offer can cause major problems for claimants and their lawyers. An understanding of the rules, the relevant cases and the steps that need to be taken  when a Part 36 offer is made before a claimant is able to properly assess their case is essential to all those involved in litigation.  This webinar addresses those issues. Booking details are available here.
