Tell me more, tell me more: the duty to advise

Posted: 27/06/2018

2 Temple Gardens,
Middle Temple Lane,

7th October 2018

Cost: Free
CPD: 1 hour

Caroline Harrison KC and Sam Stevens will focus on professionals’ duty to advise. In particular, they will consider the impact of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board [2015] AC 1439 (SC). This decision on a doctor’s duty in relation to consent to treatment has subsequently been applied in claims involving other professions, such as financial advisers.

The first part of the seminar will examine the ratio and rationale of Montgomery, exploring how it can apply outside of the clinical context. The second part will examine subsequent cases that have considered Montgomery’s application to other professions, including O’Hare v Coutts [2016] EWHC 2224 and Barker v Baxendale Walker Solicitors [2018] 1 WLR 1905.

We would be delighted if you could join us. We will start promptly at 6pm. The seminar will last about 1 hour and will be followed by drinks and canapés at 7pm.

This is a free event which qualifies for 1 CPD hour.
