Three months have now passed since the implementation of a major tranche of the Jackson Reforms. The LexisNexis Dispute Resolution team has been looking at the key court decisions to date and assessing what assistance these cases can provide in interpreting the new provisions. In particular, attention is drawn to areas where practitioners need to exercise care, at least until a binding Court of Appeal decision is in place.
In the next in a continuing series of posts highlighting the main areas of the update we turn to disclosure.
Practitioners need to be clear about what type of disclosure is appropriate. Standard disclosure may not be the default position but there is an apparent inconsistency between what is required under Rule 31.5 (3) (d), the costs estimate to be provided in Form N263 and Form H. In addition, practitioners should ensure that the estimate of costs in the costs budget is done on the basis of the type of disclosure considered to be the most appropriate and set out in the assumptions so that you have a platform to seek amendment of costs for the disclosure phase.
We are interested to hear your own experiences as well. Please leave us a comment.
