High Court considers non-party costs order on appeal

15 August 2013. Published by Dan Wyatt, Partner

The High Court recently gave judgment on an appeal against a master's costs decision in AP (UK) Limited v West Midland Fire & Civil Defence Authority.

The master's costs decision related to a non-party costs order made against Ravindra Patel, Ganshyam Patel and Parul Patel. The judgment is interesting for its comprehensive overview of non-party costs orders and its comments relating to the court's wide discretion as to costs in general.
