COSTS BUDGETING & COMPLETING PRECEDENT H: USEFUL LINKS AND GUIDANCE

At Zenith we have been working hard to ensure that we can help you with the preparation of Precedent H.  Our civil clerks Clive and Karen have produced a questionnaire designed to help with the preparation of counsel’s fees.  Contact them if you require any information about counsel’s fees for this purpose.

A number of our counsel have become heavily involved in issues relating to costs and we will shortly be announcing the members of a specific costs practice group.

Here we provide links to guidance on costs budgeting and filling in Precedent H.  Precedent H is available on Zenith’s Jackson Corner in Excel format.
