Following the decision to award the Defendants a proportion of their costs arising from a misconceived application made by the Claimants, in Ryder Limited (1) and Hill Hire Limited (2) v. Man SE (1) and Others  CAT 21, a summary assessment of the Defendants’ costs claimed of circa £1,391,000 was undertaken. Total fees of £740,000.00 were allowed despite this being an application that was disposed of after one day. On a standing back exercise, no further reductions were made, due to the way in which Ryder had brought its application.
The judgment can be found here: Ryder Ltd & Hill Hire Ltd v. Man SE & Ors  CAT 21.
