  • A most inappropriate choice of headline, given the time of year and the sore memories many have of events on 26 December 2004. Oh dear.

  • Why would anyone go for arbitration when half the world's jurisdictions don't uphold arbitration decisions? This is a vote of confidence for the English court system and English lawyers.

  • Unfortunate headline maybe, but doubt it was intentional.
    When you look at the case list it really is something. No wonder the courts are worrying about having enough judges. In October the High Court will be jam packed and that is without considering the cases which will filter through over the next year. So where will the judges come from? Perhaps its time the likes of Sumption and Grabiner take their place on the bench and let someone else bask in the limelight

  • Absurd. What other words are we banning?
    Presumably we can't "wave" someone good bye at this time of the year. Likewise as a friend of mine once died in a car crash in December, I would like nobody to mention the word "car" in the months of November, December, January and February.

  • How very exciting. Perhaps the firms involved in these huge and complicated litigations could hire some jobless NQ's to help out.......

  • This seems to be a very UK-specific domestic problem. No one requires anyone to appoint a QC or even three. No one requires them to pay them by the hour (ICC, DIS, SCC and other arbitral institutions measure ad valorem).
