Overview

PAD (Pre-action disclosure) Applications (aka 'chicken and egg' disclosure Applications) are an increasingly common feature of the civil litigation landscape in England and Wales. A sound PAD Application can have potentially significant costs savings for the client and may enhance the prospects for early settlement. It may also be advantagous in other ways, for example, by enabling a common factual basis to be ascertained or avoiding the need to plead the case on a paucity of evidence. PAD Applications are, however, considered an exception to the normal route for disclosure under Rule 31.6 and need to be handled with care. This half-day session will provide you with essential knowledge for any PAD Application you may be involved with.
