Webcast: the effect of disclosure orders on third parties

Welcome to the second in our series of four short webcasts in which we take a bite-sized look at some of the ways in which litigation and court orders can affect parties who are not participants in the relevant litigation.

In this webcast, Karla Sheerin-Griffin focuses on two of the remedies that are available to a person who has been wronged to obtain information from a person who is not, or is unlikely to become, a party to the litigation: orders for non-party disclosure under part 31.17 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR); and Norwich Pharmacal relief.

Sheerin-Griffin also discusses the consequences of failing to comply with an order for disclosure and the practical steps a non-party should take where an order for disclosure is made against them.

  • CGT extension — some good news (at last)

    HMRC released its preliminary views of the CGT consultation exercise and it seems there has been an outbreak of generosity towards taxpayers, or some of you anyway.

  • Private patient units

    It is widely expected that the trend of NHS hospitals seeking to establish or expand their private patient units offerings will continue.
