High Court provides important guidance on required knowledge, limitation, procedural time limits and relief from sanctions in procurement litigation: Altiatech Ltd v Birmingham City Council [2023] EWHC 1371 (TCC)


21/06/2023 | 10:30 am 11:30 am

The High Court has handed down its approved judgment in the Aliatech litigation. The Court’s judgment is essential reading for any lawyers engaged in the conduct of litigation relating to public contracts and provides very important guidance on a number of key issues, including:

  • the level and type of knowledge that is required to trigger the running of limitation periods under the PCR 2015;
  • the Court’s approach to claims or assertions of breach of duty made by solicitors in pre-action correspondence;
  • the deadlines that apply to the service of statements of case in procurement challenges;
  • the principles the Court will apply to any failures to meet procedural deadlines;
  • the risks that arise for contracting authorities that adopt strategies of either stonewalling or ‘drip-feeding’ in response to requests for information by disappointed tenderers.

Joseph Barrett (counsel for Aliatech) and Stephen Kosmin (counsel for BCC) of 11KBW will discuss the key lessons to be taken from the Court’s judgment.

The webinar will take place at 10.30am on Wednesday 21 June 2023
