Cooper v Robbins – Inaccurate Bills of Costs

Brodie & Company recently acted for the paying party at the detailed assessment and on the subsequent appeal in the case of Cooper v Robbins.  On appeal HHJ Raynor QC found that the Claimant’s solicitors had recklessly misstated the level of fee earners who worked on the case and that the appropriate sanction for such misconduct would be to reduce what would otherwise be payable in respect of the profit costs by 75% pursuant to CPR44.14.  A copy of the judgment on misconduct is available here:

Brodie & Company are pleased to have installed a number of pieces from acclaimed Manchester-based photographic artist, Neil Roland.

Neil has a legal background, having originally studied law.  Neil has retained a connection with the law and was commissioned to create a number of pieces for the opening of the Manchester Civil justice Centre.  Neil was also commissioned to create a number of pieces for the new Rolls Building in London and met Her Majesty the Queen at its opening.  The Rolls Building is the new home to the Chancery Division, the Admiralty and Commercial Court and the Technology and Construction Court and is reportedly the largest specialist centre for the resolution of financial, business and property litigation anywhere in the world.
