DELAY: Measuring time

18 April 2017  

Matthew Taylor looks at delay in financial proceedings and the more generous approach taken by the court in Briers v Briers

It seems that, much like buses, you wait an age for a delay case and then two come along at once. Hot on the heels of the judgment in the permission to appeal case of Waudby v Aldhouse [2016] came the Court of Appeal decision in Briers v Briers [2017].
