Recorded on 17 January 2023, Neil Frankland, Neera Malde and Peter Lennon look at the differing approaches to claims in negligence and those for breach of warranty (or fitness for purpose). They discuss how those differing approaches may affect cover under a Professional Indemnity Policy.
The second Breaking Ground webinar on the Building Safety Act 2022 will look at its changes to the Defective Premises Act 1972. Andrea Lynch, David Phillips and Adrian Kwintner also consider how the changes might affect the Professional Indemnity insurance market.
The Building Safety Act is one of the most significant pieces of new legislation to affect the construction sector and those who insure it. Ben Hardiman, Sophie Briggs and Dan Korcz take a look at some of the key provisions in the first of this two part webinar.
