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.
