Why the drafting matters

  • The wording of and validity of CPR 36 offers: examining the impact of the Court of Appeal’s decision in Seabrook v Adam [2021] EWCA Civ 38

The role of the Calderbank offer

  • The limits of CPR 36 offers and when to make a Calderbank offer instead of or in addition to a CPR 36 offer;

Revise, withdraw or renew?

  • When you should revise the terms of an offer rather than withdrawing or making a new offer.

Late acceptance of offers – who gets penalised?

  • A focus on late acceptance of offers: what if this would be unjust to the offeror? (Wormald v Ahmed [2021] EWHC 973); where does the costs risk lie? (contrasting Pallett v MGN Ltd [2021] EWHC 73 (Ch) and Briggs v CEF Holdings Ltd [2017] EWCA 2363); known dishonesty will not displace the usual rule (Tuson v Murphy [2018] EWCA Civ 1461)
