*8 Representative Claimants and others v MGN Ltd

Costs – Order for costs. The Chancery Division held that the legislative regime which permitted the recovery of an uplift under a conditional fee agreement (CFA) and after the event (ATE) insurance was not incompatible with art 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights. With respect to the CFA uplift, the laws of precedent required the House of Lords' decision in Campbell v MGN Ltd (No 2) ([2005] 4 All ER 793) to be followed and ATE premiums were not treated differently.
