The webinar will be divided into two sections. In the first half, we will be joined by Professor Dominic Regan who will discuss the latest developments in costs, including the move towards compulsory ADR, where the failure to engage is now leading to big costs sanctions. We will also have an update on the 2021 reforms by Nicola Critchley, DWF Costs' newest partner. Nicola will be discussing the subject of potential behaviour changes flowing from the reforms and their impact on costs.
In the second half of the webinar we will hear from DWF's Lionel Marcus, Director, and William Mackenzie, Costs Manager, in a Q&A session on the subject of Costs Budgeting and Management. We will then hear from Roger Mallalieu QC who will take attendees through the minefield that is solicitor and client costs with hints and tips to avoid the pitfalls.
