Excessive costs and J v J: a practitioner response (£)
The recent judgment of Mr Justice Mostyn in the North West of England case J v J [2014] EWHC 3654 (Fam) raises some important issues for the family legal profession. There are many matters dealt within the judgment which are reminders and, in this instance, stern reminders of those areas where practice lags behind recent or not so recent procedural rule changes. There are others opined upon by His Lordship which practitioners, including this author, might find hard to accept as valid or an acceptable appraisal of the current approach of practitioners to the court process and their legal costs relationship with their clients. There are other views expressed by Mostyn J which, with respect, some will regard as simply wrong.

The full version of this article appears in the January 2015 issue of Family Law.
