Strategic litigation & Jackson – Understanding & dealing with recent policy decisions

In support of the Jackson reforms, the Court of Appeal has recently developed a robust approach to dealing with litigators falling foul of the CPR, exemplified by Mitchell v News Group Newspapers Ltd (2013).

Along with providing an overview of trends and updates on areas such as costs budgets, applications for relief from sanctions, pre-action applications, disclosure, Part 36 offers and interim injunctions, MBL’s full day course will also include an afternoon workshop session in which delegates will be able to use and discuss the tools and ideas from the morning session.

Points covered by speaker Andrew Goodman throughout the day will include:

  • The Court’s approach to relief from sanctions and robust policy decisions supporting the Jackson reforms
  • Pre-action strategy, including Part 36 offers
  • Part 18 requests and strike out/summary judgment applications on part or all of the claim
  • Disclosure, including specific disclosure requests and applications
  • Interim injunctions, including freezing orders

This course is taking place in London this April – for more details and costs please give us a call on 0161 793 0984, or email lucy@mblseminars.com quoting Litigation Futures.
