PROGRAMME

9.30am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

PART 36 – THE LATEST POSITION

Part 36 offers from claimants can open the door to extra costs and higher damages. Every practitioner needs to be fully aware of the exact requirements of this crucial measure.

This talk, after a brief reminder of core requirements, will concentrate upon developments in the last year that practitioners really need to know. These will include:

  • The new approach to the measure after Glencore and what to do about it
  • The impact of a voluntary payment
  • Why you should use the Court form
  • Inadvertent rejection of offers
  • Are Sunset clauses worthwhile?
  • Breaking away from the budget
  • Negligence traps

Professor Dominic Regan, The City Law School, London

CIVIL LITIGATION – A CHANGING LANDSCAPE

  • A shift in approach to conducting litigation
  • Court fees and striking out
  • Settlement prior to trial – getting it right!
  • A round up of interesting and important cases for 2018

Simon Butler, Barrister, 9 Gough Square

SANCTIONS AND RELIEF

The failure to comply with Orders, Rules and Directions can have horrific consequences. A case can be struck out; vital evidence can be excluded and enormous costs penalties imposed. Topics addressed will include:

  • The application of CPR3.9 after Denton
  • The most common breaches
  • Securing extensions
  • How best to make an application for relief
  • The need to cooperate with your opponent

Professor Dominic Regan, The City Law School, London

LITIGATION ENFORCEMENT – MAXIMISING OPPORTUNITIES AND MINIMISING RISKS

  • Case law, procedural and other developments in this area
  • Know your opponent – forewarned is forearmed
  • How to choose the right method of enforcement to maximise recovery opportunities
  • European enforcement – where is this going in 2019
  • Does Insolvency action ever work in the enforcement arena?

Stephen Allinson, Solicitor and Licensed Insolvency Practitioner. Owner and Director, Allinsonlaw Ltd and Chairman of the Board of The Insolvency Service

COSTS – CASES AND REFORMS

Even though we are more than 5 years on from the Jackson changes, some key concepts remain uncertain. More big changes are coming in 2019 and 2020.This talk will look at the big decisions of the last year and what is coming next.

  • When are costs proportionate?
  • Assignment of conditional fee agreements
  • Budgeting developments
  • An increase in the injury small claims limit
  • The Online Court
  • Using a non-contentious business agreement

Professor Dominic Regan, The City Law School, London
