O’Beirne v Hudson [2010] EWCA Civ 52; [2010] WLR (D) 42

“Where a consent order provided for costs to be assessed on the standard basis the costs judge was not entitled to vary that order or to assess by reference to the small claims track. The costs judge was entitled to take account of all circumstances including the fact that had the case been allocated it would have been allocated to the small claims track. The costs judge had to have regard to what could or could not be recovered if so allocated. The test was whether it was reasonable for the paying party to pay more than would have been recoverable in a case that should have been allocated to the small claims track.”
