The second edition of Lawyers' Liabilities provides a readily accessible commentary to the key issues which arise in solicitors' negligence. It highlights in particular the merits of the Bolam test, abuse of process and damages.

The second edition includes new chapters on solicitor's undertakings, wasted costs, contributory negligence and the scope of duty. It covers the newly developing area of restraining solicitors from breach of confidentiality, and provides detailed comment on the important House of Lords decision in Hall v Simons. It will appeal to anyone for whom professional negligence is a potential factor in litigation.

  • Authoritative and easily accessible in equal measure
  • Of interest to academics and practitioners alike.
