Altus Group (UK) Ltd v Baker Tilly Tax and Advisory Services LLP and another

Costs – Order for costs. In an earlier judgment, the claimant's claim alleging professional negligence by the defendants, who carried on the business of accountants with expertise in the field of taxation, had been dismissed. The Chancery Division awarded the defendants 50% of its costs, having considered, among other things, that they should only recover a proportion of their costs for the period before a CPR Pt 36 offer had become effective.
