In our work we see a lot of Family files. These might be those on which Helen and I write costs appeals or those to which the Costs Drafting team apply their arcane skills.

Many of these cases will not continue to litigation but a sizeable proportion will and it is these to which Resolution refer in this piece. As the commentator to the article points out if mediation is proposed as a solution to LA cuts it is far from a complete one.

Perversely, of course, the Point of Principle I wrote yesterday involved the refusal of a Level 2, Family Help (lower) claim, and a Settlement Fee, on a case which had resolved via Mediation.
