The matters dealt with in this piece are examined in great detail in my three volume, 1,300 page book Personal Injury Small Claims, Portals and Fixed Costs – price £50 and available from Underwoods Solicitors here.

Kerry Underwood offers consultancy services in relation to this and other matters and details are here.

 

In

King v City of London Corporation [2019] EWCA Civ 2266

the Court of Appeal, in an exhaustive analysis of Part 36, held that an offer “exclusive of interest” is not a valid Part 36 offer, and that rule applies in detailed assessment proceedings as well.

The decision to the contrary in relation to detailed assessment proceedings in

Horne v Prescot (No.1) Ltd (Rev 1) [2019] EWHC 1322 (QB)

is no longer good law.
