    Assessing The Claim

    About

    Keith kicks off the series with a panel discussion on assessing the merits of potential litigation with Narinder Jhittay, barrister at Maitland Chambers, and Brian Perrott, partner at HFW.

    The discussion ranges from whether lawyers should give a percentage chance of success to their clients, to the tendency of businesses to underestimate the management time sucked in by litigation, and how General Counsel should keep control of a dispute’s management. The team also discuss the importance of looking at potential sources of litigation funding and what funders tend to require by way of information and predictability.
