Session 6: Auditors’ liability to third parties: where are we now?

28 February 2024

Speakers: Paul Mitchell KC and Isabel Barter

Following Amathus Drinks v EAGK LLP, Paul Mitchell KC and Isabel Barter will explore auditors’ duties of care to third parties, focusing on the critical issues of purpose, knowledge and reliance in such cases. They will also consider the effect of Bannerman disclaimers. This session this will be of particular relevance to those practising in financial professionals’ negligence, not least given the increasingly frequent and often high-profile nature of auditors’ negligence claims.
