Andrew Brown v Innovatorone plc and others [2009] EWHC 1376 (Comm); [2009] WLR (D) 205

“A claim form was not effectively served on a solicitor where the solicitor had not notified the claimant in writing that the solicitor had been instructed by the defendant to accept service on behalf of the defendant, and, while it did not require exceptional circumstances for exercise of the court’s power to authorise service by an alternative method to those specifically permitted, a rigorous approach was to be taken to the issue whether there was good reason to exercise that power.”
