In the sixth and final episode of our series, David Hossack discusses issues around funding claims and recovering expenses with experts Nicola Edgar and Derek Couper. The issues discussed include the various ways claims can be funded, including Success Fee Agreements, insurance and Legal Aid. Nicola also sets out the impact of the recent introduction of QOCS and the circumstances when the protection this provide claimants may be taken away. Finally, Derek and Nicola provide their advice on maximising the expenses recoverable from the Defenders, by utilising Pursuer's Offers, applying for an additional fee and considering the best way to approach the preparation of the judicial account.
