It also surveys the case law in relation to litigation plans and discusses litigation plans within the overall context of managing litigation.
Litigation Plans – Defence Perspective
James T. Eamon, QC
After reviewing the litigation plan requirements, the author speculates about a possible defence perspective of the litigation plan requirements and offers suggestions for effective drafting of litigation plans.
These papers were drawn from materials presented at the Case Management, Litigation Plans and the “Drop Dead” Rule seminar held in April 2012.
