March is upon us already and it is time for the latest edition of ATEMatters from Legal Protection Group. This month we bring you Professor David Chalk’s views on the latest key decisions and judgments affecting the world of litigation starting with a look at the impact on limitation of amending a breach of contract claim. The ubiquitous Part 36 judgment is next under the spotlight with this one focusing on court disclosure. What is the impact of an upfront, non-contingent payment on the 100% CFA success fee limit was the question asked in the case of The Winros Partnership v Global Energy Horizons Corporation and the penultimate judgment this month considers the impact of costs incurred, ‘unusual in amount’, on the client’s liability for excess costs. Last but not least, we bring you the appeal decision on a case first dealt with in the Sept 21 edition of ATEMatters regarding a dental practice’s vicarious liability.
As always, if you have any comments, queries or would like to discuss anything to do with ATE insurance and/or funding, please do get in touch.
