In this podcast, David de Mambro, a barrister at Racliffe Chambers specialising in commercial, chancery and property law, and a member of the Civil Procedure Rules committee, examines the new Part Six of the Civil Procedure Rules. The discussion is concerned mainly with the differences between the new provisions and those in force under the old regime. In particular, there is an examination of the revised rules in relation to the addresses on which documents should be served and the new focus of time-limits on date of dispatch, rather than date of service. Changes to the service of documents outside the jurisdiction, and claims in which exceptional service rules apply are also discussed. The implications of the transition from the old Part Six regime to the new rules are explored, as are the practical improvements effected by the rule changes.
