Thought-provoking piece in Law360 all about the disclosure pilot scheme ending and going mainstream. Christopher Boyne, Julia Caldwell and Emma Laurie-Rhodes of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP make some insightful points and cover off some of the key features of the new directive.

In the piece, they specifically look at multiparty litigation - something that is of particular interest to me. They explain: “There is no one-size-fits-all approach that will work for all multiparty claims. Directions for disclosure will need to be considered together with other case management directions that should, in accordance with the overriding objective, lead to cost and time savings.”

We’ll, of course, be watching how the new Practice Direction 57AD plays out. For more on what we’ve been saying about it all, take a look at our paper here.
