Jackson One Year On: Panel Discussion

LexisPSL Dispute Resolution Round Table Discussion from LexisNexis on Vimeo.

This video was filmed to coincide with the one year anniversary of the implementation of the Jackson Reforms.

The panel discussed

(1) Litigation Risk Transfer (CFAs, DBAs, ATE and third party funding)

(2) Relief from sanctions and proposed changes to Part 3 and costs budgets as well as proposed review of Part 36 and

(3) Disclosure development, interaction with costs budgeting and practical implications.

The panel consists of Neil Smith: Head of LexisPSL Dispute Resolution Group, Keith Levene: Legal Director and Costs Lawyer at Pinsent Masons, Edward Pepperall QC: St Philips Chambers and Mark Surguy: Partner at Eversheds LLP.

The purpose of the discussions was to identify those aspects of the Jackson Reforms which have had a practical impact on practitioners over the past year.  The panel discuss these and  highlight practical considerations when dealing with them in practice.  In addition, the panel consider the more generic issues which will assist practitioners such a costs funding and the interaction with funders.
