Jackson & Powell on Professional Liability 9e with Supplement
Jackson & Powell is the definitive text on professional liability and is a comprehensive guide for every practitioner.
Thirty-five years after the publication of the 1st edition in 1982, Jackson & Powell on Professional Liability is still recognised as a standard textbook for judges, commercial and civil law practitioners and others, both in the UK and other common law jurisdictions.
The 1st supplement to the 8th edition brings the main work up to date, including the following significant new cases and developments:
UKSC 21 explains the decision in SAAMCO and re-affirms the scope of duty doctrine as a part of English law; clarifying the distinction between “advisers” and “informants”.
A post BPE Solicitors decision holding solicitors who acted for large numbers of individuals in foreign purchases liable for breach of trust and as “advisers” when releasing deposit monies in breach of trust.
A solicitor’s professional indemnity policy which excluded liability for breach of any contract for the supply of services was not apt to cover a claim by a funder where the solicitor had breached a warranty to a funder of litigation. Discussion of the correct approach to construction of such policies.
The words “series of related matters or transactions” in an insurance policy are to be judged objectively and not from the perspective of any particular party. There were significant connections such that claims by each investor in a common development at a particular site were to be aggregated.
Claim following BPE against tax advisers who had supported a failed tax avoidance scheme and were found to be “advisers.”
