Lysaght v Lyndon Scaffolding Limited Huddersfield County Court, 5 December 2019, Claim Number F00HD497

Huddersfield County Court held that where a matter settled in the portal process, but the defendant failed to pay Stage 1 costs on time, the claimant’s solicitors were entitled to issue Part 8 proceedings and get fixed costs pursuant to Table 6C.

I am grateful to Nicola Allen of Brearleys Solicitors for information about this case.
