  1. How about this from David Pipkin in Litigation Funding issue 75?

    “The reality is that success fees have been successfully regulated and capped and only pose a significantly higher cost to defendants if they prevaricate and obstruct the course of justice”

  2. In other words, never defend, capitulate immediately and pay minimum costs. The Claimant`s solicitor is always right. Since when did defending a case (or even waiting for a decent medical report and prognosis) become “obstructing the course of justice”?

    The real “reality” is that Claimants` solicitors continue to only accept cases under a CFA which they know will succeed. Roll on LJ Jackson`s reforms.

  3. Interesting you should pick up on that quote from David Pipkin. I highlighted exactly the same quote for an article that is now with the Solicitors Journal printers for a forthcoming issue.
