Cameron Taylor Consulting Ltd and Another v Bdw Trading Ltd: CA 19 Jan 2022

‘issues as to the application of CPR 17.4 and CPR 19.5 concerned, respectively, with amendments and the substitution of parties following the possible expiry of a relevant limitation period. The first part of the appeal concerns the approach which the court should take in circumstances where a claimant contends that the constraints to its pleaded claim which it proposes will allow for all the defendant’s limitation arguments. The second part of the appeal concerns the nature and extent of the analysis that the court should undertake on an application to substitute one defendant company in the same group for another, where it is said that the original company was named by mistake.’
