Risk and Insurance Newsletter - July 2011

Welcome to the summer edition of the Griffiths & Armour newsletter, in which we focus on two important legal issues which throw up certain challenges for consultants to face. The first is the abolishment of immunity for expert witnesses; the second is the implementation of the Bribery Act 2010.

Expert Witness Immunity Is Abolished

The removal of immunity for expert witnesses will be an important issue for those who carry out this type of work. As well as providing an overview of the case in question which led to immunity being removed, this article looks at how this will affect expert witnesses going forward and how this new risk can be managed.

As well as touching on what organisations can do to protect themselves in the event of a bribery prosecution, this article examines the insurance implications if a prosecution does arise.
