Jackson, Sheryl (2011) Legal Profession Act 2007 s 319 - Whether costs agreement made after trial valid and enforceable - whether agreement had retrospective operation. Proctor, 31(3), pp. 44-45.
The decision in QCOAL Pty Ltd v Cliffs Australia Coal Pty Ltd  QSC 479 involved an examination of a number of issues relating to the assessment of costs under the Legal Profession Act 2007 (Qld). The decision highlights a range of issues which, in slightly different circumstances, may have deprived the successful party of the right to recover costs by reference to the costs agreement.
