Kain Knight are an ever growing force in the field of Costs Litigation
Kain Knight's Covid-19 Update - November 2020:
As we approach the second lockdown of this year, we’d like to reassure you that we are still fully operational, with staff having the necessary facilities to work remotely. We are continuing to operate “business as usual in the new normal”. In order to continue to keep everyone safe, our preference remains to receive instructions and documents electronically but where this is not possible we will still receive files via DX and post. Should you have any costs queries please email us at [email protected]; we would be delighted to assist you.
We’d also like to take a moment to thank each and every one of our clients who have continued to support us and send us instructions during these unprecedented times. We want you to know how appreciative we are.
In case you didn’t know, we are continuously facilitating online training seminars for clients with our Emeritus Costs Judge & Consultant Colin Campbell for your teams, so please do not hesitate to contact our Marketing Manager Helena Marrington at [email protected] to organise your bespoke session.
Please also watch out for our November newsletter which will be published very soon!
From us all at Kain Knight, keep well and stay safe.

Those judgments are not necessarily “the last word” as permission to appeal to higher courts has been given in some of them, as we mention below. However, it usually takes at least a year for the Court of Appeal to hear a case from the date Notice of Appeal is served until judgment is handed down, so for those, the wait for the “last word” goes on....
