LAWYERS using the Central London County Court Business List set up last June have won two improvements: the granting of Mareva injunctions, and the handling of cases worth up to u200,000.
Until now, Marevas were only granted in the High Court, while the size of case was limited to u50,000.
Both changes are welcomed by the London Solicitors Litigation Association (LSLA). Richard Fox, Kingsley Napley partner and LSLA secretary, says: "It's a big advance for the business list, and is important."
The changes were brought in by two statutory instruments, one allowing specialist circuit judges to grant Mareva injunctions, the other requiring judgments from the County Court Credit Act in a County Court.
