Supreme Court Update: Gabriel/BPE and AIG Europe – What You Need To Know

Date: 03/04/2017 CPD: 1.5 hours Cost: Free Venue: 2 Temple Gardens, London

With an introduction by Charles Dougherty QC, David Thomas and Andrew Bershadski will discuss two eagerly-awaited and important professional negligence and insurance judgments which have been handed down this week by the Supreme Court.

Gabriel v Little (BPE Solicitors and another v Hughes-Holland [2017] UKSC 21) re-considered the issues of scope of duty and the SAAMCO cap, in what is likely to become the leading authority on these fundamental points.

AIG Europe v Woodman [2017] UKSC 18, considered the thorny issue of aggregation in the context of the Law Society’s Minimum Terms and Conditions for solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance, overturning the guidance previously given by the Court of Appeal.

We would be delighted if you could join us. We will start promptly at 6.00pm. The seminar will last about 1 hour and will be followed by drinks and canapés.

This is a free event which qualifies for 1.5 CPD hours.
