How to Avoid Professional Negligence Claims Following the Jackson Reforms
Following the introduction of the new Civil Procedure Rules in April 2013 and the subsequent Jackson Reforms, there has been a significant increase in claims against solicitors, particularly in respect of relief from sanctions application deadlines being missed. There has also been an increase parties being penalised for unreasonable refusal to mediate, which begs the question will an increase in mediation lead to an increase in claims against mediators also?
This course, delivered by experienced mediator and deputy district judge Peter Causton, is aimed at professional negligence practitioners and will consider the way in which reforms, focussed on compliance with the overriding directive to deal with cases justly and at proportionate costs, has resulted in a negligence minefield for practitioners and will also discuss what the future holds.
This course will also be of interest to PI practitioners and civil litigators as it will offer guidance not only on how to reduce the risk of professional negligence claims but will also identity the potential traps which you need to avoid.
