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:
