Written by practitioners for practitioners, it deals with a variety of topics, from general principles to specific situations, and is a handy and practical guide to the procedural aspects of bringing and defending a claim for solicitors’ negligence.

  • negligent conduct of litigation (Moy v Pettman Smith);

  • causation (Chester v Afshar, White v Paul Davidson);
  • and damages for loss of a chance (Gregg v Scott).
