For a short time, following the decisions of Foskett J in Giambrone and the Court of Appeal in Travelers, it looked as though the scope for obtaining third party costs orders against insurers was much wider than had previously been appreciated. Then the Supreme Court decided Travelers.
Jeremy Cousins KC and Shantanu Majumdar KC discuss just when it still remains possible to pursue a third party costs order against insurers under s51 of the Senior Courts Act 1981, and consider just where the lines might be drawn in light of some difficult issues identified in the Travelers case.
