Sue Carr QC
Much of Sue's professional indemnity work is litigated in the Chancery Division. In particular, much of her civil fraud practice and work in lenders’ and solicitors’ claims takes place here. She has also considerable experience of "direct" Chancery work, such as company, property and tax disputes, including claims against directors, for example in relation to allegedly negligent swap-related advice. Sue regularly lectures to the Chancery Bar Association, having spoken to date on the Financial Services Ombudsman, on Daniels v. Thompson and most recently on equitable remedies in the field of knowing assistance.
