Where defendants were really in the position of claimants and had legitimately made offers which were not Part 36 offers but which sought to comply with the requirements of CPR 36, the court made an order for indemnity costs and enhanced interest at ten per cent above base rate on the claim and costs, for part of the relevant period. This was so even though the offers had been withdrawn, but only after the claimant had had plenty of time to consider them (F and C Alternative Investments (Holdings) Ltd v Barthelemy).
