O'Brien (a protected party suing by his father and litigation friend O'Brien) v Shorrock and another

Costs – Order for costs. Following the settlement of a claim, the judge conducted a detailed assessment of costs and decided, inter alia, two preliminary issues relating to the conditional fee agreement (CFA) which the claimant's litigation friend had entered into with his solicitors. The MIB appealed against the judge's order. The Queen's Bench Division, in allowing the appeal in part, ruled as to, inter alia, the assessment of the success fee and an issue concerning the 'back-dating' of the CFA.
