It’s that time of year again, the kids are back at school and the Christmas decorations are fighting for space on the shelves with the Halloween kitsch. Never fear, the latest edition of ATE Matters from Legal Protection group is really something this month to get your fangs into. Top of the list this month, and no doubt one which will bring a sigh of relief, is the judgment on Withers v Joyce & Nugent dealing with solicitors’ liability for costs. ATE Matters would not be the same without something relating to Part 36 and again we fail to disappoint however, the subject of Without Prejudice is prominent this time round with two recent judgments worthy of note. Finally, one to share with your injury litigation colleagues, some clarity on the Court’s approach to client witness evidence and the disparity with medical records.
As always please do get in contact with us if you have any feedback on ATE Matters or if you have any queries or need advice on ATE insurance and/or litigation funding.
