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”. Unfortunately, the question of what is proportionate continues to cause confusion and dispute.  In this latest […]

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.

It is received wisdom that the global legal landscape will be dominated by a few mega players, but more detailed predictions are scarce. The smart money seems to be on firms like Clifford Chance, Linklaters & Paines and Freshfields in the UK, and Baker & McKenzie, White & Case and maybe Skadden Arps in the […]

Global firms rake in biggest turnover

BIG firms with a powerful presence overseas turn over half as much again as those without, according to a survey of the world’s 50 largest law firms. The survey, published by the International Financial Law Review (IFLR), also found that firms which have partners and associates permanently based in foreign offices are more successful than […]

From lithe trainee solicitors trying to maintain their youthful fitness to tubby senior barristers seeking to shed fat as a New Year resolution, the legal profession is being consumed by the work-out bug. Lawyers are heading for the gym in increasing numbers as they realise that staying healthy makes them enjoy life more and perform […]

Europe may intervene in immunity case

The European Court of Human Rights may be asked for the first time to decide if barristers can be sued for negligent conduct in court cases.
