Article summary

Dispute Resolution analysis: The TCC considered whether the claimant had validly served its particulars of claim on the defendant by email. The defendant had noted their solicitor’s email address on Form N434 (change of legal representative), but the court held that this was not a sufficient indication in writing of the defendant’s willingness to accept service by email for the purposes of CPR PD 6A, para 4.1. As such, this was not good service of the claim. Written by Christopher Humby, of Counsel at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
