In this fifth episode of our series of commercial litigation update podcasts, we briefly outline the state of play for Brexit as it affects litigation in the English courts. We also look at some developments since our last update relating to the disclosure pilot, witness evidence reform and remote hearings, and finally we look at some developments relating to so-called “class action tourism” where group claims are pursued against large multinational companies in the English courts in relation to alleged acts or omissions of their subsidiaries abroad, often relating to environmental or human rights issues. This episode is hosted by Anna Pertoldi, a partner in our litigation team, who is joined by Maura McIntosh, a professional support consultant, and Joanne Keillor, a senior associate.
