Case of the Month
5/2018
Wasted Costs Order
The EAT held in Wentworth-Wood v Maritime Transport Ltd.. that care had to be taken before a “wasted costs order” was made against a firm of solicitors. In other words getting them to pay the costs of (usually) the losing party due to e.g. being negligent and or breaching their duty to the tribunal. But confirmed such awards could be appropriate once the ET had asked the right questions. And advisers as well as litigants should always be aware of the possibility as tribunal costs awards for e.g. unreasonable conduct become more common.
