Tuesday 23 July 2013 Arguably the most far-reaching changes to civil litigation for 15 years, the Jackson Reforms (which came into force on 1 April 2013) are designed to streamline cases, revolutionise litigation funding, and ensure that the cost of litigation is proportionate to the dispute. As a result of the reforms, all cases will have to be dealt with not simply “justly” but also “at proportionate cost”. The seminar, which is targeted at Company Secretaries/in-house lawyers (both non-contentious and contentious), is designed to be a practical guide to the post-1 April world, and sets the Jackson Reforms in context, covering the key changes, useful tactics and possible pitfalls for clients. It will also cover how to manage litigation post-Jackson as cost-effectively as possible. This seminar will be helpful if you deal with litigation as part of your role or in terms of advising your boards about how the reforms will impact them. Your speakers, Annabel Thomas, Peter Fitzpatrick and Lauren Gash are solicitors at Enyo Law LLP, the specialist City litigation-only firm, and regular speakers on the Jackson reforms and litigation funding. If you would like to attend this event please contact Fiona Otika on: events@awcsonline.net by Thursday 18th July 2013. The cost is £20 for members and £25 for non-members.
