Testing the Limits of Dishonest Assistance

Posted: 03/05/2018

2 Temple Gardens,
Middle Temple Lane,

10th January 2023

Cost: Free
CPD: 1.5 hours

2TG’s Commercial Dispute Resolution Group invite you to a seminar devoted to liability for dishonest assistance – a fast developing and potentially perplexing area of the law; but also one which can be a powerful tool for the commercial practitioner seeking to establish third-party liability.

Isabel Barter will address recent cases and their implications for dishonest assistance, including the test for dishonesty as refined Ivey v Genting, the question of ‘blind-eye’ knowledge as explored in Group Seven v Notable, and the importance of timing of dishonesty as discussed in Group Seven and IAP v Rosser.

David Thomas will consider how the rules of limitation apply to this most nebulous of liabilities and where the law of limitation stands following Williams v Bank of Nigeria and First Subsea v Balltec.

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 1.5 CPD hours.
