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.

The bigger the better

Our favourite stateside rumour last week featured the merger of not two, but three US top 100 firms. The first won’t surprise anybody: Heller Ehrman. As one of the few firms to show falls in revenue and profit last year, it has been at the centre of merger rumours for months. The continuing drip of […]

The waiting game

The Ministry of Justice keeps delaying its response to proposals to change the personal injury system, causing massive disruption to law firms. Four lawyers from opposing sides share their concerns

Class conscious

One of the areas most likely to see the introduction of new forms of collective claim is the field of antitrust damages claims.
