The Exeter Council are delighted to welcome Jeff in this face to face session.

Session Overview:

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court, consisting of seven justices, handed down judgment in two cases (Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton UK LLP and Khan v Meadows). These are two major decisions that will have a major impact on anyone who provides professional services and how allegations will be approached by insurers, lawyers and the courts.

The Supreme Court has created a new roadmap and provided guidance on this area of law that will have major ramifications.

This session will take you through the decisions of the Supreme Court and provide guidance on how providers of professional services should be taking steps now to mitigate the risk of claim being made against them, as well as looking at how the decisions will impact claims.

Venue: Kennford Suite, Exeter Court Hotel, Kennford, Exeter, EX6 7UX

Timing: Registration with tea/coffee & bacon rolls at 8:30am, session starts at 9am

Face to face CPD session ends: 10.00pm

Learning objectives:

At the end of the session attendees will:

  • Identify the key elements of the two recent decisions in the Supreme Court
  • Recognise the legal principles as they now stand in professional negligence claims
  • Implement a strategy to mitigate the risk of claims being made against you as a professional advisor and deal with any claims that may arise.
