The EAT has concluded that the strict time-limits on starting an appeal apply equally to cross-appeals.
This provides an excellent opportunity to reiterate that the EAT’s approach to time-limits in relation to appeals is rigourous and that anyone who wants to appeal must make sure that they meet them. Trying to get an appeal in late is extremely difficult, verging on impossible.
This advise now applies equally to cross-appeals. If you are late, you are likely to be in the frustrating position of watching the other side’s appeal proceed, while yours is knocked out before it gets off the ground.
