David Marshall appointed to the Civil Procedure Rule Committee
The Lord Chancellor has appointed David Marshall as a solicitor member of the Civil Procedure Rule Committee (CPRC). The committee is chaired by Lord Justice Coulson, the Deputy Head of Civil Justice, and is responsible for monitoring and improving the court rules for all types of civil proceedings.
Mr Marshall is Managing Partner at Anthony Gold Solicitors, where he specialises in serious personal injury cases, particularly brain and psychiatric injury. He was an assessor to Lord Justice Jackson’s supplemental review on fixed recoverable costs, and vice-chair of the Civil Justice Council’s working groups on noise-related hearing loss and on lower value clinical negligence claims.
David has been with Anthony Gold Solicitors since 1985 where he started as trainee solicitor. He will sit as a CPRC solicitor member for a three-year duration.
The CPRC is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Ministry of Justice. The committee was established under the Civil Procedure Act 1997 to make rules of court for the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the County Court. The Civil Procedure Rules set out the practice and procedure to be followed.
Mr Marshall is a member, and past chair, of the Law Society’s Civil Justice Committee.
Commenting on his appointment as it was published on the Cabinet Office website, he said:
“I am excited about joining the CPRC at this very challenging time. I look forward to using my knowledge and experience of civil law practice to influence and shape civil procedure, in particular with regard to the increasing digitisation of process, already underway through the online court initiative which will be inevitably speeded up as a result of the response to the pandemic.”
