Type of Court:

It is important to commence proceedings in the correct court, both to avoid the costs consequences and delay in the claim later being transferred to a different court (or at worst strike out) and also to ensure that the claim is proceeding in the court to which it is best suited, in terms of the specialism of the judge and the procedure. Bleasdale & Co can guide you through all the different courts and their particular jurisdictions, as well as the relevant rules on where to commence proceedings, in order to help you make the right choice. We can explain the difference between the County Court and the High Court and the relevant financial limits for claims in these courts. We can also set out the scope of the different divisions of the High Court and guide you through all the specialist courts, explaining both the type of work they cover and their geographic locations. If you require assistance with this particular issue, please contact us to arrange an appointment.
