About Solicitors’ Negligence and Liability

Solicitors’ Negligence and Liability is the leading title on all aspects of solicitors’ liability. It is written by a team of practising lawyers who deal with claims against solicitors on a daily basis. It provides comprehensive, practical analysis on claims against solicitors in contract, tort and equity, as well as solicitors’ duties of confidentiality, limitation, contributory negligence and contribution. It also contains extensive thematic coverage of solicitors’ claims in areas such as conveyancing, mortgage lending, litigation, wills, estates and trusts and wasted costs. New to this edition are two chapters on the regulatory framework for solicitors, SRA investigations and proceedings before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.

New content:
This edition has been comprehensively updated to reflect all relevant legislation and case law changes since the last edition published in 2008. In particular it contains an extensive and topical discussion of mortgage lenders’ claims and significant new cases such as The Achilleas (remoteness), Haugesund v Depfa (Saamco), Lloyds Bank v Markandan & Uddin (lenders’ claims) and Nationwide BS v Dunlop Haywards (contribution). This edition also documents the growing influence that professional regulation has on solicitors’ liabilities, covering regulatory redress, disciplinary sanctions, the SRA Code of Conduct 2011 and the impact of conduct rules on duties.
