Portal Tactics: Exits and Tactics




This webinar will examine the Exits from both the RTA and EL/PL Portals. Running cases efficiently within the Portal is always a challenge and knowing when an exit is advisable and legitimate is key. All exits are not equal and Court decisions around the country begin to clarify the exits that limit Claimants to Portal costs and those that are more likely to result in fixed Exit costs. Knowing which is which is an important skill.

After watching our Webinar you will have learnt all about:

  • The Exits relevant to value at both lower and upper end
  • The latest case law examining Exits that could lead to fixed costs recovery in Part 7 cases
  • The defendant led exit situations
  • The Notice led Exits where costs payments are not received
  • The provisions for Interim payment applications and Exit consequences for failure to pay
  • The non-specific reasons for exit where claims are “not suitable for the Portal” in the light of recent case law

We will be discussing:

  • Value – upper and lower
  • False Exits – Costs Risk
    • Insurer acknowledgment
    • Earnings details in EL
    • Payment of Non-settlement Payment
    • Payment of Agreed Damages
  • Defendant led Exits
  • Failure to pay Costs Exits
  • Interims – Tactics
  • “Not suitable for the Portal” Exit

 Book this Webinar if you want to be able to:

  • Make valuations of value to justify Exits on value
  • Assess the latest decisions to make cost effective Exit decisions
  • Pick up Defendant failings and activate Exit options effectively
  • Make cost effective requests for interims
  • Exit effectively when interim payments are not made on time
  • Apply the “unsuitability for the portal “ Exit opportunity in ways with the least costs risk


The webinar is now available as a recording and you can access it whenever you wish.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
