CASES AGAINST LAW FIRMS DOWN

Figures collated by RPC suggest the post-financial crisis wave of professional negligence claims against law firms has passed. High Court cases against firms were down 47% last year. While the number of cases spiked by 192% to 418 for the year 2013-14, the number of actions against solicitors for the 12 months to 30 June 2015 is lower at 221.
