Principles on assessment of costs on standard basis – necessary or proper
Jackson, Sheryl (2007) Principles on assessment of costs on standard basis – necessary or proper. Proctor, 27(10), pp. 55-56.
The judgement in Hennessey Glass and Aluminium Pty Ltd v Watpac Australia Pty Ltd  QDC 57 McGill DCJ provides valuable guidance for practitioners as to whether a range of particular costs items should be permitted on an assessment on the standard basis, and the amounts which should be allowed for such items. The items in issue included counsel’s fees and fees paid to expert witnesses. The decision also examined GST implications for the recovery of legal costs.
