Higgins and others v ERC Accountants & Business Advisers Ltd and another

Claim form – Service. The claimants' claim form, seeking damages or equitable compensation from the defendants, as their former accountants and financial advisers, for alleged breaches of contract, negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty and/or statutory duty, had not been served by provision of a copy under cover of letters to the defendants' solicitors. The Chancery Division further refused orders for service by an alternative method, dispensing with service or an extension of time for serving the claim form.
