Parties are often surprised by the level of legal costs for which they are potentially liable. For large organisations such as the NHSR, the costs paid out on claims is often highlighted in the press. In multi track claims incurred and future costs are normally set out in a costs budget so the parties can see exactly what they are letting themselves in for, although qualified one way costs shifting can apply, reducing the Claimant’s exposure to costs in a personal injury claim. A mediator is also likely to highlight the costs that have been and will be incurred and this can be a driver to towards settlement. Mediation is a good way to get out of the hot water of legal costs. #mediator #adr #mediation #litigation #training #business #advocate #barristers #clinicalnegligence  #civility #hearings #counsel
