It may well be wet, windy and miserable outside but once again you can look forward to the latest edition of ATEMatters from Legal Protection group. This month our friend, Prof. David Chalk, gives us his views on the latest key judgments and decisions affecting the world of litigation.
We start this edition with some guidance from the Chancellor of the Hight Court on the implementation of the new Disclosure Pilot for the Business and Property Courts (PD51U) scheme. The case of Lejonvarn v Burgess  has provided particular interest and this latest update is no exception. For the second month in a row, and a judgment which will be of utmost interest to anyone involved with Litigation Funding, is a decision on the application of the ‘Arkin Cap’ and one contrary to a case reported in last month’s edition. We have included a couple of cases to finish off this edition which will be of interest to any of your colleagues involved in Clinical Negligence work. Firstly, the case of Burke v Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust  and a decision concerning ‘Expert Shopping’ and finally, another judgment relating to fixed costs and one applicable to all schemes not just RTA.
