An Update on the Jackson Reforms

Clair Hall
Thursday, 16 March 2017
5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
    • Perry Hill, DWF LLP

It was 2009 when Lord Justice Jackson began his review into civil litigation costs, but how many of his recommendations have been implemented and what is further down the pipeline?

To find out, the Insurance Institute of Sussex is delighted to announce that Perry Hill of DWF LLP will be speaking to us on this important subject.

Perry will address what has worked from a legal and claims perspective and what has not been as successful. He will also consider the changes that claimants' solicitors and accident management companies have made to their business models following the implementation of the reforms and he will look at the proposed changes to low value whiplash claims.
