Compulsory conference and mandatory final offer test case

We acted for the insurer in the ACT Supreme Court in the first case to test the extent to which the court would dispense with a compulsory conference and mandatory final offer. The case involved multiple parties and different statutory schemes  where liability was admitted to some but not in others. The court allowed the compulsory conference to be dispensed with, but not the mandatory final offer. (Furler v Haureliuk [2010] ACTSC 68)
