Solicitors professional indemnity insurance (PII) seminars

30 April 2014


It is fair to say that the renewal in October 2013 was extremely difficult for a large number of firms.  The threat of the Extended Indemnity Period and Cessation Period caused many a sleepless night for those responsible for their firm’s renewal. This year we face the possible introduction of the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s requirement for the use of rated insurers only – This could have serious ramifications for many firms.

Willis, a leading broker on solicitors professional indemnity, are hosting a series of seminars across the UK to provide you with an update to the latest insurance and risk management issues facing the legal profession, relevant case law and the latest developments in the ever-changing Professional Indemnity Insurer market for solicitors in England and Wales. It should help firms preparing for renewal and hopefully take some of the stress out of the process.

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
