16th August 2021

3PB’s specialist construction law barrister James Davison (pictured here) has reviewed the case of Curtiss and others v Zurich Insurance plc (t/a Zurich Building Guarantee and Zurich Municipal) and another [2021] EWHC 1999 (TCC) for Lexis®PSL.

The judgment provides a framework for the approach courts will be inclined to take when applying the new limits set out in the Disclosure Pilot; and is a must-read for all property and construction law practitioners.

In the Curtiss case, the result was that the extent of disclosure ordered by the court was limited in comparison to what the claimants sought.
