Mrs Justice Yip highlights a problem that we are all too familiar with regarding experts' agendas in David John Saunders  -v- Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2018] EWHC 343 (QB).

Two agendas were produced for the experts' meeting resulting in a joint statement that was 60 pages long. Mrs Justice Yip said that she could see no good reason why the parties were unable to agree a single agenda.

I sympathise with the lawyers in this case and understand how the decision is reached to produce two agendas but I agree that sometimes less is more and that adopting a collaborative approach is far more helpful to the court.
