Updates to the Admiralty and Commercial Court guide

On 28 March 2013 the Admiralty and Commercial Court released an updated guide including a helpful table setting out the changes to the old guide.

While amendments have been made to a number of sections (including some to reflect recent changes to costs estimates in the CPR), of particular note to arbitration practitioners are changes to Paragraph O, 8.6 (which reiterates that an arbitration claim challenging an award under s68 should be brought on narrow grounds only - and not as an alternative to/means of support of an application for permission to appeal) and 8.8, which has enhanced the procedure relating to the court’s power to summarily dismiss of applications under s68 (and lays out a discretion for the Court to award costs on an indemnity basis).
