a consolidated pre-action protocol

27 April 2007

Many of Browne Jacobson's clients instruct the firm to deal with claims on their behalf, either at a pre action stage or following issue of a claim in the courts. Many of these claims fall within the ambit of the existing pre-action protocols. Browne Jacobson and its people therefore have extensive experience of working under the protocols and of the strengths and weaknesses inherent in their processes. Further, Browne Jacobson and its people often have the opportunity of conducting an impartial review of pre-action conduct between a client and another party to a claim and this highlights areas in which the pre-action protocols might be strengthened.

Browne Jacobson recognise the benefits to its clients of an effective pre-action protocol as a means of achieving appropriate resolution of a claim at an early stage and with minimal costs. Browne Jacobson is eager to contribute to the ongoing development of the pre-action protocols with a view to building upon their effectiveness.
