DISCLOSURE PILOT: UPDATE BREAKFAST BRIEFING
Thursday 4 April 2019
As of 1 January 2019, a new disclosure regime applies to most claims in the Business & Property Courts of England and Wales for the next two years (including claims already issued). This Disclosure Pilot Scheme signals a major change in the approach which parties and judges will be expected to take to disclosure in litigation, even before proceedings have commenced. This change imposes new duties on advisers and opens up new strategic and tactical considerations for all litigators, which this seminar is designed to address.
Ten Old Square are hosting a breakfast briefing to discuss the new regime and the details of the seminar are below.
TEN OLD SQUARE’S SPEAKERS|
The event will be chaired by Jonathan Gavaghan, who was a member of the Chancery Bar Association’s Working Party on the Pilot. He will speak on the aims and extent of the Pilot, the thorny subject of “adverse documents” and the pros and cons of the new regime as a whole.
David Schmitz will then address the practical impact of the Pilot on parties before and after commencing proceedings (including the new duties of “Initial Disclosure”).
Finally, James Kirby will discuss preparing for the CMC: Disclosure Models, Questionnaires and beyond.
