Costs control in the civil justice system has proved a tough nut to crack. From Lord Evershed’s inquiry into English procedural reform in the 1950s, through Lord Woolf’s Access to Justice reforms in the 1990s, to Lord Justice Jackson’s review of Civil Litigation Costs over the past decade, the conclusion has been the same - the litigation process costs too much. Providing a solution to the problem has been a long step-by-step process. FOIL has been a long-term supporter of fixed recoverable costs. In 2007/8 FOIL’s then President, Anthony Hughes, took an active role in the negotiations leading to the development of a fixed recoverable costs regime for the new Low Value Protocol/Portal process.
