Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance: How Many Limits of Indemnity?

AIG Europe Limited v Woodman & Others [2017] UKSC 18

The Supreme Court has today finally put to bed the long running AIG solicitors' insurance claims aggregation saga. Market wisdom has broadly prevailed on the principles and the confusing qualifications introduced by the High Court and Court of Appeal have gone. However the Court did decide that insurers will only be partially successful on the agreed facts in that separate limits of indemnity were available for each of the two developments, which demonstrates once again how fact sensitive liability cap issues are.

We have vast experience in implementing strategies for insurers and insureds facing multiple claims and are always available for an informal initial discussion.  Please contact Richard Loney if you would like to know more.
