Costs

Within: Costs – Leading silks

Simon Browne QC - Temple Garden ChambersA good choice where you want someone to strongly fight your corner.

Within: Costs

Temple Garden Chambers has a strong presence in this space and regularly advises on costs management hearings and group actions. In the combined Supreme Court cases of Times Newspapers Ltd v Flood; Miller v Associated Newspapers Ltd; Frost and Other v MGN Ltd, three national newspapers argued against paying success fees and ATE premiums on the grounds that doing so would infringe the papers’ freedom of expression rights. The refusal to pay was successfully challenged by the respondents, represented by Simon Browne QC, who in BNM v MGN also persuaded the Court of Appeal that the senior costs judge was wrong to hold the new test of proportionality applies to still recoverable additional liabilities. James Laughland was a junior in both standout cases.
