Guidance from the SCCO on approval of costs settlements, assessments under CPR 46.4(2) and deductions from damages

Important guidance has arrived from the senior costs judge Andrew Gordon-Saker, which outlines the procedure to be followed in the Senior Courts Costs Office where a child or protected party has been awarded the costs of proceedings and an agreement has been reached with the paying party as to the amount of those costs.

The practice note serves as a useful tool to all litigators when concluding matters on behalf of children and protected parties.
