Disclosure and inspection of documents Order for disclosure. The claimant firm brought an action seeking payment for outstanding invoices in relation to professional services provided to the defendant in relation to a project to develop a property in Lancashire. The defendant counterclaimed, alleging professional negligence. Shortly before the trial, the claimant applied for specific disclosure and permission to rely upon the expert evidence of a forensic accountant. The Chancery Division dismissed the application where the matter in respect of which specific disclosure and expert evidence was sought, was not a key issue in the context of the case, and considering the lateness of the application.
