Halborg v EMW Law LLP

Costs – Taxation. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that a limited liability partnership of solicitors, which acted as its own legal representative in litigation, was not a litigant in person and was not confined to the level of costs allowed to litigants in person. The claimant limited liability partnership of solicitors fell outside CPR 46.5(6)(a) because it was a corporation which was to be treated as having acted with a legal representative and it fell outside CPR 46.5(6)(b), which applied only to individuals.
