This edition features some of the latest key changes in the changing litigation landscape, including a summary of the first corporate manslaughter conviction for a care home under the new Sentencing Guidelines for Corporate Manslaughter and Health and Safety Offences, and an update regarding Part 36 offers. I certainly hope you find it informative.

This edition features our experts who specialise in strategic disease.
