An updated, detailed and authoritative analysis of the law relating to disclosure in civil proceedings.
The rules dealing with disclosure are notoriously tricky. This book provides an authoritative and detailed analysis, examining both substantive law and procedure, discussing the “who, what, how and when” of disclosure obligations and explaining the implications of non-compliance.
