The likely imminent commencement of the new amending Rules of the Superior Courts in Ireland, will impact on practice and procedure within the High Court, and are likely to fast track legal actions in Ireland.

It is worthwhile noting that the Commercial High Court in Ireland has, on average, in its first 10 years, admitted and processed 199 cases per year, with 188 on average being disposed of within that year.
