Court Has Power to Serve Disclosure Application on Third Party Outside the Jurisdiction
12 September 2022
View Debevoise In Depth
The High Court has power to permit service of non-party disclosure applications outside the jurisdiction of England and Wales.
The discretion to do so will only be utilised where the letter of request regime ordinarily used to obtain information from non-parties abroad is not suitable.
We expect that further guidance will be required from the Court of Appeal given the relatively novel decision.
