Litigation is expensive and time consuming, and is sometimes pursued by parties who lack the resources or inclination to pay the other side's costs if they lose.
This toolkit provides know-how resources to enable a respondent to test the means and resolve of a claimant, obtain some security for the costs incurred in the litigation, and prevent the claim proceeding if that security is not provided, including:
- Practice note: Security for costs
- Standard document: Application for security for costs
- Standard document: Lawyer's affidavit to support application
