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.
