Disclosure – time for change - Panel Debate

Event date: 
Tuesday, 16 January, 2018 - 18:00
Non-members price: 

Tuesday 16 January 2018 at Simmons & Simmons LLP  

Panel: The Hon. Mr Justice Knowles CBE – Commercial Court, London, Chief Master Marsh – High Court, Chancery Division, London; Ed Crosse, partner, Simmons & Simmons, and President of the London Solicitors Litigation Association (LSLA);  David Owen, Barclays Bank Plc and Caroline Field, partner, Fox & Partners and Committee Members of the LSLA

The panel will outline some significant proposals to modernise the approach taken to disclosure under CPR Part 31 in the Business and Property Courts.  The proposals are the result of a review undertaken by the Rolls Building Disclosure Working Group (DWG) over the past 18 months, in consultation with the profession.  The panel, which includes four members of the DWG (three of whom were responsible for drafting the proposals  -  The Hon. Justice Knowles, Chief Master Marsh and Ed Crosse)  -  will outline what these reforms will mean in practice for clients and their advisers and why they are needed.
