The ongoing coronavirus Covid-19 crisis continues to impact on UK civil litigation hearings with a recent High Court decision meaning that the largest ever class action claim can proceed remotely. Whilst such remote hearings may be seen as a means to an end during the current lockdown conditions, once such hearings become the ‘new normal’, the impact on how civil litigation claims are conducted is likely to be huge.

When a solicitor begins the process of preparing a civil litigation claim for professional negligence, one of the most common questions their Client will ask is ‘how much compensation should I expect’? Whilst the short answer could be ‘how long is a piece of string’ (which is not very helpful, of course!), once the nature of the claim and the amount of financial loss suffered as a result of the negligence has been established, it should be fairly straightforward to establish the amount that can be claimed for.

The commercial courts had fast become the court of choice for litigants from Europe and farther afield, but the dual impacts of undecided post-Brexit legislation and the more recent Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic has seen litigants seek alternative jurisdictions.

Litigants from EU countries formed 13.6% of all litigants, down from 16.5% two years ago. In contrast, statistics compiled by litigation consultants Portland show that the number of litigants from Singapore and Kazakhstan has risen almost 200% since 2018/19. UK... Read More
