What a difference a year makes

A year later and the bar is gearing up for a bumper 2010 and litigators are reporting a significant upswing in the number of high value complex cases being issued.

The year will kick off with Lord Grabiner QC heading to the Court of Appeal in an attempt to overturn a High Court decision that found his client, Total, liable for the damage caused by the Buncefield oil depot explosion (see blog).

The Lawyer will reveal 2010’s top 10 cases in January.

With so many companies being burned elsewhere during the recession, next year promises to be one of the hottest on record for litigators.
