Andrew Butler KC succeeds in High Court in professional negligence limitation argument

5th October 2022

The High Court’s judgment in Morris v Knights Solicitors (HHJ Kramer, Newcastle BPC, 5 October 2022) provides important guidance for all practitioners in relation to the interpretation of s14A Limitation Act and the “warehousing” of claims.

As regards limitation, it addresses, among other issues, the “starting date” under s.14A(4)(b) where a solicitor wrongly persuades a client that criticism of his work is unfounded until after the time for a claim against him has passed.
