New Working Group established to consider Pre-action Protocol Fees

Jan 06, 2022

The Council has approved two new pre-action protocols (PAPs) for ‘disease’ and ‘clinical negligence’ cases which were developed by its Personal Injury Committee. These new PAPs follow previous Council work which implemented a PAP in personal injury actions.

The Council has remitted remit the new protocols to its Costs and Funding Committee (CAFC) for the development of suitable fees structures. The CAFC has established a working group made up of those with suitable expertise to assist in developing the underpinning policy for the fees regimes.

More information including details on membership and remit of the working group is available on the Council's website here
