Fenwick Elliott Annual Review 2014/2015

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. The Review features two contrasting pieces. We provide an update on what you need to know, about BIM focusing on the legal and contractual implications. In the summer of 2014, Mr Justice Akenhead delivered a very lengthy judgment involving a dispute under the FIDIC yellow book. The Review features three articles arising out of that judgment. Early 2014 saw the publication of new ICC rules on mediation, and our Review this year begins with a look at alternative dispute resolution or ADR. Finally we also look at arbitration agreements.

There are plenty more articles for your consideration, the links to which are below or you can download a PDF of the full Review by completing the “Download our Annual Reviewform.
