Nicholas Peacock, Charlotte Adams, 'Counting the Costs of the Wembley Litigation' (2009) 30 Business Law Review, Issue 2, pp. 22–23
Multiplex Constructions (UK) Ltd v. Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd sets out eight principles for parties and their lawyers to consider regarding how a court will approach the question of costs in commercial litigation,and sends a clear message to litigants that settlement should be in the forefront of their minds at all times. This article examines the principles, and asks whether they give parties any greater certainty as to on which side of the court’s discretion they will ultimately find themselves.
