Professional and Management Liability Gazette 9th edition

Jun 2022 | Insurance

Carter Newell is proud to release the 9th edition of our Professional and Management Liability Gazette.

In this edition we consider recent decisions involving a wide range of professionals including brokers, building consultants, medical practitioners, solicitors & barristers, in addition to claims relating to policy interpretation and procedure.

In Johnson v Firth [2021] NSWCA 237, the New South Wales Court of Appeal considered whether a solicitor breached their duty of care by recommending a client settle his claim prior to obtaining medico-legal evidence in circumstances where the client was in a dangerous financial position. We also look at the apportionment of liability between building consultants for the design and construction of a building using non-compliant materials in Tanah Merah Vic Pty Ltd & Ors v Owners Corporation No 1 of PS613436T & Ors [2021] VSCA 72.

Aimed to provide our insurer, broker, professional and corporate clients with a succinct synopsis of recent decisions, we hope you find our 9th edition Professional & Management Liability Gazette a useful resource.
