3PB Barristers are hosting a free Commercial Law Webinar via Zoom on Tuesday 28 September 2021 from 11am to 12pm, presented by Seb Oram and Charles Irvine.
Seb Oram on "Reassessing ‘scope of duty’ in Commercial disputes". By restricting a defendant’s liability to those losses within the scope of his duty, the law places limits on a defendant’s financial responsibility for wrongdoing. Following the Supreme Court’s restatement of the principle in Manchester Building Society v. Grant Thornton  UKSC 20, this talk examines, first, how the scope of duty principle operates; and, secondly, what application it is likely to have in commercial claims, in professional negligence and beyond.
Charles Irvine on "Recent developments in the law of Limitation". Charles' presentation will include:
- Sciortino v Beaumont  EWCA Civ 786
- Elliott v. Hattens Solicitors  EWCA Civ 720
- Butters v. Hayes  EWCA Civ 252
- FII Litigation  UKSC 47
- Dixon Coles & Gill v. Bishop of Leeds  EWCA Civ 1097
- Holt v. Holley & Steer Solicitors  EWCA Civ 851)
