Lenehan Musgrave LLP is pleased to report that a client of the firm has received a $70,000.00 cost award. Cost awards are ordered to contribute to the successful party’s legal fees and disbursements. Costs are in the discretion of the Court, but a successful party is generally entitled to a cost award.
Trial lawyers Diana Musgrave and Daniel Wood achieved a successful result for their client after an eight day trial, which was heard in May, June and August of 2015. Justice Jollimore of the Supreme Court (Family Division) considered the complex nature of the case when deciding that a $70,000.00 award would do justice between the parties.
