Private Nuisance Litigation Masterclass: How can nuisance claims be best defended or the consequences mitigated? (2 CPD points)

Environmental claims in nuisance are on the increase again.  Claimant lawyers appear to have regained confidence post-Jackson.  These are strict liability claims which are difficult to defend and the costs in multi-party actions remain high.  You are invited to hear the views of specialist practitioners and to discuss, following Jackson and Fen Tigers (UKSC), whether these claims have become any easier to defend. If they are not, then how the consequences for defendants best be mitigated.  The seminar will give both claimant and defendant perspectives. Further detail on the content of the seminar is provided in the attached flyer.

Speakers: Stephen Hockman QC (Chair), William Upton and Gordon Wignall
Venue: 6 Pump Court Chambers, Temple, London
Time:  4.30-6.30pm
