Kerry Underwood on Jackson and fixed costs

Lord Justice Jackson’s report on fixed costs was published on 31 July, recommending that fixed recoverable costs should apply to claims valued up to £25k. While this is a significant scaling back of his earlier proposals to apply fixed costs for all claims up to £250k, Kerry Underwood says Jackson’s report still represents a ‘revolution’. Here, he lists the incoming changes, and what litigators should be doing now in practice.
