How will I know how to prepare for my case ?
After you start your claim and your opponent has filed a "Defence", the court will then send you a timetable, (this is called "Directions").
This timetable will tell you what you have to do next. For example, you may be told to send to your opponent copies of all the documents that you intend to use at the Hearing, including any Experts Reports.
