Bell & Anor v Brabners LLP

[2021] EWHC 560 (QB)

Just a reminder that correspondence with any decision-making tribunal, court, arbitration or adjudication should always be copied to the other side. Mr Justice Fordham noted here that:

“it is a cardinal principle of the conduct of proceedings before the Court that, absent an identified compelling reason, a party’s communications with the Court on matters of substance or procedure...must always be copied to the other parties to the proceedings. It is inappropriate, and unjust, to seek to communicate with the Court without this transparency. This cardinal principle is clearly recorded in CPR 39.8. Observance of it is important.”
