The following Dispute Resolution guidance note Produced in partnership with David Juckes, Barrister of Hailsham Chambers provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Note: This Practice Note is relevant only to Part 36 offers as considered under CPR 36 in force as from 6 April 2015. For guidance on transitional provisions, see Practice Note: Illustrating the changes—the transitional provisions for the revised Part 36 in force as of 6 April 2015.
This Practice Note explains what a Part 36 offer is, the reasons behind making one and the costs consequences of Part 36 offers made by claimants and defendants, as considered under the CPR 36 in effect as of 6 April 2015.
A revised CPR 36 came into force on 6 April 2015 replacing the old set of rules governing Part 36 offers. See News Analysis: The New Rule 36 in force from 6 April 2015 for an analysis of the revised regime.
For a Part 36 offer made on/after 6 April 2015, therefore, the revised CPR 36 rules apply and all references to provisions of CPR 36 in this Practice Note are, unless specifically stated otherwise, references to the CPR 36 in force as of 6 April 2015.
To understand the changes as between the pre-6 April 2015 regime and the revised CPR 36 in force as of that date, see Practice Note: April 2015 revisions to CPR 36—table of changes.
