Jackson: Civil unrest

10 Apr 2017

BLM's director of policy and government affairs, Alistair Kinley has spoken to The Law Society Gazette about the current position with the Jackson reforms to the litigation process, and what lies ahead for litigators amidst talk of further reform in the summer.

Alistair says: "Fixed costs in personal injury have made that type of case more predictable and probably easier to plan and manage,’ he says. ‘Costs budgeting is in my view a worthwhile exercise. It may need some tweaks and changes in particular areas, but it is sensible and pragmatic to know what is required before you start the [litigation] process."
