Jackson to review complex commercial disputes
Large-scale commercial disputes will come under the remit of Lord Justice Rupert Jackson's review into the high cost of civil litigation, Jackson said today. Jackson's 650-page preliminary report issued earlier today warns that the commercial courts are not a 'sacred territory' and that his findings will still apply to complex commercial cases.The news comes despite earlier concerns about whether potential procedural changes to litigation should apply to complex, multi-party disputes in the higher courts as well as to commoditised cases in the lower courts.
