September 2018 Issue

With the summer behind us and the kids back at school, what better way to relax than a coffee and the September edition of ATE Matters.  Once again our good friend, Professor David Chalk, has picked out his selection of the latest key legal updates and judgments affecting the world of litigation.  An interesting mix this month including the ubiquitous Part 36 but also security for costs and details of a new pilot scheme for disclosure.  These are available to read in our September edition.

Costs proportionality and reasonableness, vicarious liability and validity of CFA are all available to read in our August edition.

Decisions regarding Part 36 offers are flavour of the month and have nearly taken over July’s edition.  The judgment on Malone v Birmingham Community NHS Trust [2018], relating to the proper naming of opponents, being the headline to stop the clean sweep. These are all available to read in our July edition.
