Article summary

This week has seen a further flurry of activity in relation to new CPR updates and, in particular, the introduction of ‘buffer agreements’; namely the ability for parties to agree in writing an extension of time of up to 28 days in relation to various procedural deadlines. We have also reported on the 72nd CPR update, which comes into force with immediate effect and relates to costs management (PD 3E) and amendments consequential to the new Taking Control of Goods regime. We continue to focus on providing a roundup of key news stories from the last week highlighting their practical implications, as well as updating our Practice Notes to ensure you are kept up to date; examples this week include Marks & Spencer in which the Court of Appeal overturned a claim for overpaid rent following a lease break and the EU’s adoption of the European Account Preservation Order intended to make it easier for companies to recover claims across borders. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
