Civil litigation is a process for resolving public and private legal disputes on civil matters through negotiation or through the courts. In 1999, new rules (the Civil Procedure Rules) were introduced in order to improve access to justice. These are also known as the Woolf Reforms because they were developed by Lord Woolf.

Lord Justice Jackson has recommended sweeping changes to litigation funding and solicitors’ costs.

Many of the recommendations in Lord Jackson’s review of civil litigation costs will require careful scrutiny and significant impact assessments before being implemented.

Key proposals in Lord Justice Jackson’s final report include:

success fees and ATE insurance premiums should cease to be recoverable
awards of general damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity to be increased by 10 per cent
amount of damages that lawyers may deduct from a client’s damages award for success fees to be capped at 25 per cent of damages, excluding any damages referable to future care or future losses
referral fees should not be permitted for solicitors in respect of personal injury cases
fixed costs
non-recoverability of CFA success fees and ATE premiums
