Solicitors professional liability webinar

We are hosting a webinar with leading professional indemnity insurance brokers Griffiths & Armour which will focus on the professional indemnity market for solicitors, causes of claims, how to successfully recover fees and a new claims trend concerning SDLT multiple dwelling relief.

The webinar will be hosted by Kennedys partner Martin Chesher, with the speakers covering: 

  • a review of the October 2020 renewal season, market trends for April 2020 and how best an insured can position itself for renewal in a volatile market.
  • Recent causes of claims we are handling (such as drafting errors, scope of retainer and mission creep) and the remedial steps which can be taken to try to minimise those risks.
  • Guidance as to how a firm can position itself to best advance a fee claim or exercise a lien over files so as to avoid or minimise the prospect of a negligence based counterclaim.
  • A summary of a new claims trend involving SDLT multiple dwelling relief and the steps we have taken with clients to streamline the claims process.
