In Mitchell v News Group Newspapers the Court of Appeal laid down their interpretation of the CPR in respect of relief from sanctions and stated that the idea was to eliminate satellite litigation. But these cases still came before the courts and the interpretations vary from circumstance to circumstance.

Now the Court of Appeal has given further guidance in three fresh cases.

MBL’s one hour webinar will review the approaches that the courts have taken this year together with the latest Court of Appeal decisions to consider what will happen in different circumstances.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
