Within: Professional negligence

4 New Square is 'top of the tree for professional negligence work' thanks to its 'wide range of experience and expertise meaning it is able to provide suitably experienced counsel for a range of claims and subject matters.' Key highlights for the 'user-friendly' set includes Justin Fenwick QC acting for the appellant in Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton, which examined the application of SAAMCO in auditors’ negligence cases, while Ben Patten QC and David Halpern QC represented parties on both sides in Dreamvar (UK) Ltd v Mishcon de Reya, the leading case on liability for identity fraud in conveyancing. Elsewhere, Jonathan Hough QC, Miles Harris and Jamie Smith QC appeared in Accident Exchange v McLean, which examined the scope of legal professional privilege. Fenwick QC and George Spalton acted for PwC in Premier MotorAuctions v PwC & Lloyds, a £50m claim involving allegations of negligence and conspiracy, while Neil Hext QC and Alison Padfield QC acted on either side of a claim against insurance brokers arising from a fire at a popular East London bar.
