We are delighted to have teamed up with specialist legal training company, Kinch Robinson to develop a new e-learning course on Costs Budgeting.
The course is designed specifically to assist multi-track litigators to properly draft and calculate their Precedent H forms. Even if you rely on us to prepare your Cost Budgets, it remains the responsibility of the fee earner with conduct of the case to ensure that the content is correct before signing the ‘Statement of Truth’. Therefore it’s always good to get it right!
The course is suitable for all fee earners and team members that are involved in bill preparation.
To book the course, visit Kinch Robinson's e-learning webpage here. John M Hayes clients are entitled to a 50% discount on the cost of the course - offer expires 31 December 2015. Contact your regional office for more details on this offer.
The topics covered on the course include:
CPR relating to costs
Case study of a personal injury claim arising from an accident at work
Impact of the court's refusal or approval of a costs budget
