I’ve just received a bill of costs that states:
“This Bill has been drawn in multiple parts so as to differentiate between the work done pre and post 1st April 2013 on the basis that the former Lownds proportionality test applies to the pre 1st April 2013 work”.
Half correct. It also applies to the post-1st April 2013 work in this case because proceedings were issued pre-1st April 2013. I knew this would cause problems.
I won’t name and shame.
