The fact that a claim is remotely connected to a contract will not prevent it from being “in respect of a contract” for the purpose of obtaining permission to serve out of the jurisdiction under CPR 6.20(5) but it will be a factor when the court considers whether England is the proper place in which to bring the claim. A claim for contribution under the Civil Liability (Contribution) Act 1978 in connection with an ATE insurance policy fell within CPR 6.20(5) even though the claimant was not party to the contract and the claim was not brought under the contract (Greene Wood & McLean v Templeton Insurance Ltd).
