May 2019 Issue

To help celebrate May Day we are pleased to bring you the latest edition of ATEMatters with this month’s focus on some key recent judgments and decisions.  Pivotal to anyone involved in litigation funding is the case of Davey v Money [2019] which gives further clarity on the Arkin Cap and potentially a spanner in the works for funders choosing to indemnify the client without the support of ATE insurance protection.

For those of you who use or plan on using the new Disclosure Pilot in the Business and Property Courts should definitely take note of UTB LLC v Sheffield United Ltd [2019].

Finally this month, a little further clarity on the calculation of success fees and how ATE insurance premiums are to be treated.

As always, if you have any comments on ATEMatters or if you would like to discuss anything in relation to commercial litigation ATE insurance or funding, please do get in touch.

These are available to read in our May 2019 edition.

 

April 2019 Issue

The wonderful spring sunshine may have left us temporarily but to brighten your day we have the latest edition of ATEMatters from Legal Protection Group.  As always our esteemed colleague, Professor David Chalk, has given us the benefit of his views on all the latest judgments and decisions affecting the world of litigation. 

This month we start things off with an interesting case looking at alleged fraud and the setting aside of a trial outcome followed by a judgment by Sir Rupert Jackson himself involving a contract dispute.  For those of you involved with CFA work, the decision on Butler v Bankside is worth noting and we round things off with a couple of cases from the world of clinical negligence litigation which some of your colleagues may be interested in.

These are available to read in our April 2019 edition.

 

March 2019 Issue

As we spring into March, welcome to the latest edition of ATEMatters from Legal Protection Group.  Contract and Professional Negligence judgments are first to bloom this month including a very interesting case relating to a claimant failing to prove what they would have done had there been no negligence.  Inevitably we could not leave off  a quick mention of the MoJ’s LASPO review and there is a link to the full report for those who wish for some ‘light’ bedtime reading.

These are available to read in our March 2019 edition.

 

February 2019 Issue
