Introduction

With huge professional indemnity insurance claims having been reported in the last two years, particularly ones involving solicitors, accountants, brokers, and those involved in the construction industry, it is timely to consider recent legal developments in PI insurance law.

Barrister Alison Green will consider professional indemnity insurance claims on insurers and how aggregation of these claims may be treated in the light of important decisions by the Court of Appeal this year.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • Professionals particularly at risk of professional negligence claims in the wake of the Covid 19 pandemic, including solicitors, accountants, and insurance brokers, and how this may impact on claims against insurers
  • Professionals facing claims in the surveying and construction industry, which will include the recent case of UK Acorn Finance Ltd v Markel
  • Aggregation of professional indemnity claims, including the following recent cases: Spire Healthcare v Royal Sun Alliance and Baines, Lord Bishop of Leeds v Dixon Cole & Gill & others
  • Interpretation of solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance in the light of the Court of Appeal decision in Baines and the High Court decision of Doorway Capital Ltd v AIG as to the meaning of ‘private practice’
  • Insurance brokers’ misrepresentations and non-avoidance clauses following the brokers’ successful appeal in ABN AMRO Bank NV v Royal Sun Alliance

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Tuesday 15th November 2022 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
