Negligence claims against solicitors

I am retained by a major law firm to give their litigators regular updates. The practice specialises in defending solicitors .
This time last year they had been notified of perhaps a dozen potential claims.
This year they have 300 . What is worse is that most have been triggered by events after the Mitchell decision.
It is so important to be abreast of developments. Or else .
The great Frank Maher makes the point that if you get a payout on your indemnity insurance you are really getting a loan . What they pay will be recouped via a higher renewal premium.
