Professional and Management Liability Gazette 5th edition has been released
Carter Newell’s Professional and Management Liability Gazette 5th edition has been released, joining the firm’s extensive suite of industry publications.
Aimed at providing a useful resource for our firm’s insurer, broker, professional and corporate clients, this edition examines cases involving solicitors & barristers, medical practitioners and financial advisors & accountants, and covers decisions relating to procedure and policy interpretation.
Of particular interest is the High Court’s recent ruling in Paciocco v ANZ, considering whether bank fees amount to penalties at law or equity.
This edition also looks at the impact of section 54 of the Insurance Contracts Act on the rights of contribution between insurers, and important issues that arise in respect of the indemnification of legal costs for administrative investigations.
