Litigation in Ireland: a comparison with litigation in England
We are delighted to be hosting a seminar which will provide an overview of conducting litigation in Ireland in both the High Court and the Commercial Court, comparing it to litigation in England and Wales. The seminar aims to provide attendees with an outline of the main similarities and disparities between conducting litigation in the two jurisdictions.
We will also be discussing recent developments in Irish legislation and Civil Procedural Rules which have the potential to bring significant changes to litigating in Ireland and will bring the Irish system more closely in line with England. In particular, we will be discussing the new Mediation Act which came into force on 2 January which requires claimant solicitors to consider mediation at the outset in all cases.
The seminar is intended to be interactive and will be followed by a Q&A session during which we can respond to queries regarding the peculiarities of the Irish system and the best tools available to solicitors in dealing with Irish claims.
