While in general interest on costs is payable from the date of the judgment under the incipitur rule (Hunt v Douglas), interest on costs incurred under a conditional fee agreement (CFA) was held to be recoverable from the date the costs were quantified, exercising the discretion to vary the date from which interest begins to run under CPR 40.8. In the absence of any terms to the contrary in the CFAs, the claimants were entitled to recover interest on costs and did not have to account for it to their solicitors, Leigh Day, even though they and not the claimants had funded the litigation. Permission granted to appeal to the Court of Appeal (Motto v Trafigura Ltd).
