My in -house seminars

By far the most demanded talk of the year is on Part 36 and settling claims,not surprising when one considers the immense impact of Gibbon and the unhelpful C V D decision.
Jackson ?Young and the future of litigation is joint second along with new litigation tactics,of which there are dozens.
The Bribery Act will be on the agenda too from next month.
Drop me a line if you might be interested in any of them or indeed my rolling CPR updates.Thanks.

clinical negligence work

A new pilot scheme is coming later this year.Those who think it a safe and lucrative haven are misguided.Sir Rupert Jackson sees it as grotesquely expensive and it was the very first thing he referred to at the launch of his final report in january last year.The Young proposal to create a portal in april 2012 also indicates heavy downward pressure upon practitioners.
