Alan Eadie - BTO Solicitors LLP

Within: Professional negligence

The ‘knowledgeable and diligent’ team at BTO Solicitors LLP attracts praise for its ‘tactical skill when aiming to achieve an economic settlement at a pre-litigation stage’. With a focus on defence work, the practice frequently acts for professional indemnity and D&O insurers covering a broad range of professionals, including advocates, accountants, architects and engineers. Alan Eadie, who jointly heads the team with Ashley Mawby, acted for the professional indemnity insurers of a firm of solicitors in a $210m action brought by the principal shareholder of an oil service company pertaining to a private equity investment. The claimant alleged that the solicitors acted for both sides in the investment and used another firm to act for the investor in negotiations in order to cover its involvement. Derek Allan retired.
