Webinar Recording: Litigating in Scotland Part 1 of 2 - How to Recover Your Litigation Spend in Scotland

Recovery of the costs of litigation is an important consideration whether defending or pursuing a claim. The rules for recovery in Scotland are similar to those applicable in England & Wales, but there are important differences to be aware of.

In this webinar we cover:

  • Potential benefits of bringing a claim in Scotland in relation to expenses (costs), where you have a choice of forum;
  • How to navigate the Scottish expenses (costs) rules: an overview of the process;
  • Where the approach to expenses is similar north and south of the border; and
  • Some important differences between the forums.

This webinar is the first in a two part series. Please join us for Part 2, where we will explain how to enforce (i) a Scottish Court Order in other parts of the UK, and abroad; and (ii) a foreign judgment, in Scotland. Full details are to follow.

The recording is now available on YouTube and Vimeo.
