David Halpern QC is the successful Respondent in an important appeal for professional indemnity lawyers and insurers

On 6 August, the Court of Appeal gave judgment in Bishop of Leeds v Dixon Coles & Gill [2021] EWCA Civ 1221, in which David Halpern QC of 4 New Square Chambers was the successful Respondent. 

 

The judgment is important to professional indemnity lawyers and insurers because the Court held that the Aggregation provisions in the Minimum Terms and Conditions for solicitors’ insurance do not permit the Insurer to aggregate thefts by the same solicitor from several different clients.
