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.

Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
