          Professional Indemnity

          Claims with merit need to be resolved in a speedy and cost efficient manner, while those without require a robust, cost-effective defence.

          With recognised specialist capability throughout the UK and Ireland we handle a full range of professional indemnity matters. Our sector based approach within professional indemnity enables us to fully understand the needs of insurers, insureds and brokers.

          Commerciality is at the heart of all we do – from cost effective and innovative claims handling services through to the robust defence of claims without merit.

          Expertise in our domestic markets is coupled with extensive experience of dealing with claims around the world – making us one of the foremost professional indemnity offerings in the market.

          Lack of witness credibility leads to a failure of a lost chance claim

          12 June 2019

          The recent decision of His Honour Judge Pearce in Perry –v- Raleys (for which see DWF's earlier article here). The case provides a powerful reminder of the need for Claimants to prove 1) what they would have done in any hypothetical scenario and 2) to provide evidence to support the value allegedly lost. In this claim for £820,000, nominal  damages only were awarded.
