Client Guide: The English Court Disclosure Pilot, What Does It Mean For Litigants?

This Client Guide outlines the mandatory English High Court Disclosure Pilot (Disclosure Pilot), which came in under Practice Directive 51U (PD 51U) from 1 January 2019 and applies to most actions in the Business and Property Courts.

This Client Guide is updated to reflect the recent reforms, including those that came into force on 1 November 2021 under the 136th PD Update.

The Disclosure Pilot brought about a whole-scale change to the English litigation disclosure process, which all users of the English High Court should be aware. 

This is a whole-scale change to our disclosure process of which all users of the English High Court should be aware.

This is an updated version of the HFW Disclosure Pilot Client Guide first published in February 2019
