Updates on proportionality of costs in court proceedings

By Gwendoline Davies, Claire Acklam Anyone involved in the conduct of litigation will be aware that the ‘overriding objective’, at rule 1.1 (1) of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), requires cases to be dealt with “justly and at proportionate cost”.

Women on Boards – As they progress, businesses thrive

By Susana Almeida Lopes Women represent 50% of the working population and are as much or more educated and qualified as men are.

The Waterside Inn, Bray

I’m not sure if you’re allowed to eat here under the age of 50. Other than Oslo Court, it’s the most oldie-friendly place I’ve been to in some time. I’d tried a number of times to get a reservation and it was only by actually turning up in person that I managed to get in […]
