From Legal Futures’ Associate Travelers
Drafting is a skill that lawyers have to learn and it’s required in all fields of law, whether you are producing a lease, a commercial contract, a will or an agreement for division of the financial assets of a divorcing couple. Insurers know that, whatever the transaction, similar mistakes are likely to be made – they will just be more expensive in some cases than in others. Over the last six years, drafting errors have generated around one claim in eight.
