Protecting Customers Against Fraud - Exploring the Liability of Banks
This new virtual classroom seminar will consider the liability of banks to protect their customers from fraud.
The Contingent Reimbursement Model Code has proved to be something of a damp squib and its operation is already under review.
The extent of banks’ liability (the Quincecare duty) is a rapidly evolving area of law with a number of landmark decisions in 2022.
In Philipp v Barclays Bank the duty was expanded, both in terms of the types of customers protected and the types of fraud protected against.
In Nigeria v JP Morgan Chase, the application of the duty was tested at trial.
In Stanford International Bank Ltd v HSBC Bank plc, the Supreme Court decided how the duty interacts with insolvency law.
