These new rules are significant because they affect virtually all potential Tribunal claims. It is possible that the rules will lead to “satellite litigation” (i.e., a situation where claims are fought theoretically before going through the Tribunal system), but in many cases the early disclosure of information will help both parties understand the strength of their cases, and in many cases this will aid early and cost-effective resolution.
