TCC—case management

The following Dispute Resolution guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • TCC—case management
  • TCC claims in the Rolls Building
  • Assigned judge—TCC
  • Communicating with the TCC
  • Case management—TCC's approach
  • Case management directions in the TCC
  • Practical tips on case managing a TCC claim

This Practice Note looks at case management in the Technology and Construction Court (TCC) under CPR 60, CPR PD 60 and the Technology and Construction Court Guide, section 5. CPR 29 is also relevant given the allocation of TCC cases to the multi-track.

In particular, it considers docketing by means of an assigned judge, how to communicate with the TCC, the TCC’s approach to case management, case management directions in the TCC and settlement and ADR in the TCC.

Finally, it sets out some practical tips on case managing a TCC claim.

Note:

  1. TCC Central London County Court (TCC CLCC)—for applications to the TCC CLCC, see Practice Note: Electronic applications in the TCC CLCC [Archived]

  2. multi-track—all TCC claims are treated as being allocated to the multi-track (CPR 60.6)—see Practice Note: TCC—allocating, transferring, staying and discontinuing proceedings. As such, save for any inconsistencies with CPR PD 60, CPR 29 and CPR PD 29 apply to the case management of TCC claims. This Practice Note gives guidance on the provisions set out in CPR 60, CPR PD 60 and the Technology and Construction Court Guide ('the TCC Guide'). As these provisions are additional to the general provisions set out elsewhere in the CPR, this Practice Note should be read in conjunction with general guidance on multi-track case management, including Practice Notes: Multi-track—case management, Case management—checklist and
