Additional liability

In the context of dispute resolution, an additional liability can be a success fee ( www.practicallaw.com/resource.do?item=:40225191) under a conditional fee agreement ( www.practicallaw.com/resource.do?item=:40225115), the insurance premium for ATE insurance ( www.practicallaw.com/8-205-5100) or the additional amount in respect of provision made by a membership organisation which has undertaken to meet costs liabilities.

Note that on 1 April 2013, the majority of the Jackson/civil litigation reforms came into force. As a result of these changes, it is no longer possible to recover an additional liability from the losing side, except where the funding arrangement was entered into before 1 April 2013 or in a few excepted cases (see Practice notes, Conditional fee agreements entered into before 1 April 2013 and in the excepted cases: an overview ( www.practicallaw.com/9-525-3177) and After the event insurance (for policies taken out before 1 April 2013 and in the excepted cases) ( www.practicallaw.com/9-525-2168) ).
