Solicitors professional liability webinar

We are delighted to be holding our solicitors professional liability webinar on Wednesday 20 January 2021.

Our experts will review three issues which we expect will become prevalent in claims against solicitors in 2021:

  • Dishonesty - the Supreme Court decision in Stoffel v Grondona and whether that opens the floodgates to claims tainted by dishonesty. 
  • Aggregation - the Dixon Coles decision and the potential limitation to the circumstances in which claims arising from dishonesty may aggregate.
  • Scope of retainer - NDH Properties v Lupton Fawcett.

As well as reviewing each case, we will address the effects this trio might have on 1 April renewals in an ever hardening market.

Michelle Johnston will then provide a brief update on trends arising from ground rent claims which continue to plague solicitors, particularly the smaller conveyancing firms.
