Working together to avoid court
30 March 2000 we registered a new venture at Companies House following the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) being applied to court cases on 26 April 1999. The CPR and their associated Practice Directions were designed to improve access to justice by making legal proceedings cheaper, quicker, and easier to understand for non-lawyers.
iJustice® launched in January 2014, is the latest version of our online dispute resolution platform developed to achieve better management of any claim, made for whatever reason, enabling it to be dealt with justly and at a proportionate cost.
iJustice® is continuously being updated, in-house, to best enable parties to work together to avoid proceeding altogether, or, by following Pre-action Protocol to narrow the issues in claims filed with the County Court of England and Wales.
