In April there were no fewer than 43 reported decisions on Mitchell.

Although there have been individual appeals on their facts to the Court of Appeal since Mitchell, there is no case (yet) which purports to resolve the various controversies of the Mitchell doctrine.

For the first time the Court of Appeal has listed 3 appeals together to be heard over 2 days (16 – 17 June) by Lord Dyson MR. It is hoped that the court will give further guidance which will enable litigators to properly understand the application of the Mitchell principles and their limits.

Vikram Sachdeva is acting for the Appellant in one of the three cases: Utilise TDS Limited v Davies [2014] EWHC 834 (Ch).
