This is the second in a three part series of video blogs in which we discuss the reformed Part 36 of the Civil Procedure Rules, which applies to settlement offers made on or after 6 April 2015.

This video focuses on the changes relating to amending offers, and the new ability to make time limited offers may not be as attractive as first appears.  The video also explains how Part 36 now operates in relation to split trials; and the potential pitfalls of the new “moratorium” provision, which prevents parties from accepting Part 36 offers for 7 days after a preliminary issue hearing.
