When bringing a claim, you have to tell the decision-maker what you want. Lawyers often finish this off with a standard phrase such as “such other relief as [the decision-maker] thinks proper”. If this adds anything to the claim, it may increase the claim fee. So, what does it add? Possibly, some added support for a claim that wasn’t already spelled out. But this wording alone is unlikely to be enough, as Mr Justice Fraser warned parties to an adjudication.
