MoJ Jackson consultation paper published

The Ministry of Justice’s consultation paper on implementing Lord Justice Jackson’s proposals has now been published.

This contains some interesting suggestions for minor amendments to Jackson’s recommendations but the main thrust of the consultation is that recoverability of success fees and ATE premiums will end combined with the introduction of qualified one-way costs shifting and an increase in general damages.

Further information available on Legal Futures and the Law Society Gazette sites.

Of course, claimant lawyers might be able to persuade the government during the consultation process that the whole thing is a terrible idea.
