Dear [Insert]

Re: [Name of Client/Name of Claimant]

You will be aware from the Court timetable that we provided you with that you are required by the court to conduct a discussion of this case with [Insert eg the claimant’s/defendant’s expert] for the purposes set out in the Rules (CPR 35.12).

The purpose of discussions between experts is to:

  1. identify and discuss the expert issues in the proceedings;

  2. reach agreed opinions on those issues, and, if that is not possible, narrow the issues;

  3. identify those issues on which they agree and disagree and summarise their reasons for disagreement on any issue;

  4. identify what action, if any, may be taken to resolve any of the outstanding issues between the parties.

They are not to seek to settle the proceedings.
