High Court limits scope of duty to warn in solicitor’s retainer
Cathal Anthony Lyons v Fox Williams LLP  EWHC 2427 QB, 11 October 2016
The defendant solicitors were retained by Mr Lyons to advise on potential claims under his accidental death and dismemberment
insurance policy (AD&D policy). Although the defendant was aware of the existence of a long-term disability policy (LTD policy),
the engagement letter only referred to advice on the AD&D policy. Mr Lyons brought a claim against the defendant for failing
to advise him on a potential claim under the LTD policy.
