A. Procedures to shorten the legal proceedings at an early stage under Order 13A – Introduction and Objectives

The Order 13A mechanism is a procedure introduced under the Civil Justice Reform in 2009 in order to encourage the parties to consider settlement at early stages of the legal proceedings (usually after the service of Writ of Summons or Originating Summons but before the filing and service of defence).   This mechanism intends to save the time and costs of litigation.
