In this fourth episode of our series of commercial litigation update podcasts, we look at a variety of cases and developments, including an update on the disclosure pilot and proposals in relation to witness statements. We also look at recent cases on privilege, witness evidence, access to court documents, claim notices and freezing injunctions. This episode is hosted by Anna Pertoldi, a partner in our litigation team, who is joined by Maura McIntosh, a professional support consultant, and Kevin Kilgour, a senior associate.
