Burgess & Anor –v- Jejonvarn [2019] EWHC 369 (TCC)

This case did not go nearly as well for the Claimant, who rejected the Defendant’s Part 36 offer of £25,000 made in March 2015 and subsequently lost their entire case at Trial, where they received nothing.  The Claimant’s own Part 36 offer was £45,000, though they had pleaded their case at nearly £360,000. 

The Defendant, whose Precedent H was over £720,000, sought payment of their costs on the indemnity basis, but the Court ruled against that, but did order that their costs be paid on the standard basis, including their pre-action costs, plus interest of 4% above base rate.
