Professional Indemnity Insurance by Mark Cannon QC
Professional Indemnity Insurance
|Author||Mark Cannon QC and Brendan McGurk|
|Publisher||Oxford University Press|
This new book is a comprehensive and practical guide to professional indemnity insurance law (PII). Although governed by conventional insurance law principles, PII raises unique difficulties that require special attention.
Professional Indemnity Insurance focuses on professional indemnity concerns and provides a clear, concise description of the general concepts of the applicable law.
To better demonstrate points of law and lines of argument, the book provides exposition of key authorities (including from significant Commonwealth jurisdictions). Standard terms (such as the lawyers' Minimum Terms) and policy wordings in general use are discussed. Practical topics like claim handling and risk management are also thoroughly discussed.
The credit crisis has increased the demand for risk management advice, and the collapse of Northern Rock has resulted in an increase in claims against valuers. This new book is timely, and it will be an invaluable resource for solicitors and barristers who practise professional liability and insurance/reinsurance.
