This event has now finished.

Join us after work for bite sized learning and drinks with your peers in the marketplace at our next Thirsty Thursday, presented by our Partner and Head of Weightmans’ Political & Market Advisory team David Johnson.

David will set out his views on  Part 2 of the Civil Liability Bill and where it is likely to lead us in relation to the discount rate. His presentation will cover the following issues:

  1. Where the bill is up to and the prospects of it becoming law.
  2. The time frames around when the bill will come in to force and when the discount rate is likely to be changed thereafter.
  3. What the next discount rate is likely to be and the things that may come to influence that between now and the next review of the rate.
  4. What else may arise out of the Civil Liability Bill and the Government’s related response to the Judicial Select Committee’s enquiry around the discount rate.

David has a unique perspective on these issues, having given evidence before the Judicial Select Committee in relation to the discount rate and having been active in lobbying Government about how the discount rate should be set.  As a catastrophic injury law, he is also well versed in the use of the discount rate at a practical level and will be able to give incite into how the proposed changes in the law will come to translate in practice.
