Reply to Defence

A Reply to Defence is a statement of case in civil proceedings that is filed/served after a Defence has been filed/served.
A Reply to Defence is normally opitional (assuming there has been no counter-claim/"Part 20" claim) and will only need to be filed if the claimant wishes to allege facts in response to matters raised in the Defence that were not previously raised in the Particulars of Claim.
If a counter-claim/"Part 20" claim has been made by the defendant, the claimant will normally incorprate a Defence to the counter-claim/"Part 20" claim into a Reply to Defence (and if he is the target of the counter-claim/"Part 20" claim he must file a Defence to it or risk judgment-in-default).
