As the world recovers from the pandemic, we will see a lot of activity in this area. It’s never been more important to stay informed and follow the latest judgments by the UK Courts on such important and “delicate” subject matters, due to their significant impact on court proceedings and rights of parties.

The process of Service under the UK CP Rules, for example, is an important and complicated process. A simple mistake can lead to significant delays in court proceedings. 

In a common law system, court precedents play a major role in setting judicial principles. Therefore, having access and knowledge of the latest precedents in such tricky subject matters is significant and can help you avoid pitfalls in a case.
