Proving and pleading your case – how to get it right

Recorded on: 08/05/2024

There is a myriad of requirements when it comes to stating your case and how it is to be proven, and too often we see parties fall foul of them. In March, for example, the High Court ruled that a circuit judge was entitled to make a wasted costs order against a firm of solicitors that failed to translate their client’s statement and pleadings for use at trial.

Failure to comply can literally make the difference between winning and losing. In this webinar Dominic Regan will identify the key requirements of which every litigator needs to be aware.

  • Challenging contested evidence after Tui v Griffiths – must fraud be overtly pleaded?
  • The failure to allege contributory negligence
  • 2024 guidance on running a fundamental dishonesty argument – the danger of pleading too much
  • What language is a witness statement to be in?
  • Who bears the burden of proof on a remoteness of loss argument?
