Notice to lawyers
June 18, 2024

Lawyers broke a record in the number of family claims reported last year, with increased settlor’s remorse claims and challenges to separation and family agreements. Given the emotionally charged environment of many family law matters, it is perhaps not surprising that family law lawyers are more likely than other lawyers to report to LIF because of a breakdown in managing client relationships.

What can you do? Watch this video of LIF Claims Counsel Richard Panton where he describes an actual claim against a family lawyer and how it could have been avoided. You will learn how to manage your client’s expectations and avoid a settlor’s remorse claim.
