Cover of Annual Review One of the features of last year’s Review was the impact in the UK of the latest reforms to the court procedural rules or CPR. The changes introduced led to a number of controversial decisions. We also provide an update on what you need to know about BIM, arbitration agreements and ADR and also take a look at a very lengthy judgment involving a dispute under the FIDIC yellow book.

 

Cover of Annual Review One of the most important talking points this year has been impact of the latest reforms to the court procedural rules. Our Review considers these and other changes to these rules including expert evidence. We follow that discussion with an update on the public procurement tender process, e-disclosure, developments in BIM and the liability of adjudicators.
