Amendments to Applications

Published: 27 January 2017

A recent High Court decision highlighted the Court’s extensive discretionary and case management powers, albeit in circumstances in which the presiding Master (Master Matthews) opted against exercising his discretion to grant the application.
Applications to amend statements of case before the courts have decided the cases in question are often issued but in Agents Mutual Ltd v Moginnie James Ltd [2016] EWHC 3384 (Ch) the issue before the Court was whether or not an application notice could be amended.
