Commercial Litigation seminar

Commercial Litigation seminar


Our London Commercial Litigation team invite you to a seminar with presentations, Q&As and practical guidance covering key developments in dispute resolution over the past 12 months.

Topics will include:

Judicial treatment of expert evidence and recent changes to Practice Direction 35

Speaker: HH David Grant, Trowers & Hamlins

The way in which expert evidence is adduced in Court and other proceedings is a key matter for litigators to consider. There are important recent developments, not least to Practice Direction 35, dealing with 'concurrent expert evidence' (or to use the more colloquial term, 'the hot-tub').

HH David Grant joined Trowers & Hamlins' dispute resolution and litigation group on his retirement from the Technology & Construction Court in 2017.  He was the judicial member of the Civil Justice Council's working group on this topic, and he will examine the options available.

Expert evidence in public law cases

Speaker: Lucy James, Trowers & Hamlins

Lucy James acts in commercial litigation matters and also has considerable experience of public law and contentious procurement matters.

Lucy will examine the role of expert evidence in cases involving public law issues, including:

  • reliance on experts in support of decision-making
  • consequences of reliance on erroneous expert views
  • the role of experts in Judicial Review

Accountancy evidence in post M&A disputes

Speaker: Ned Beale, Trowers & Hamlins

Ned Beale acts for both buyers and sellers of businesses in post M&A claims, including completion accounts, breach of warranty and earn out disputes.

He will give an overview of the role of accountancy evidence, including an update on the legal principles and practical tips on protecting your position both before and after business sales complete.
