Fenwick Elliott Annual Review 2010/2011

According to research published on 20 September 2010, by TheCityUK’s legal services and dispute resolution group, the use of arbitration and mediation in the UK has risen dramatically - almost certainly as a consequence of the current financial crisis. Our 14th Review therefore looks at the revised TCC Court Guide which came into effect at the beginning of October 2010. One of the new features of the Guide is that it specifically recognises the possibility of introducing the expert hot tub to trials, so naturally enough we investigate just what that is all about. The TCC Guide also stresses the importance of mediation and we summarise the findings of the 2010 report entitled “Mediating Construction Disputes” carried out by a Fenwick Elliott-led team.
