Dekinar: The Damages Claims Portal – when it applies and avoiding pitfalls


Published: 16/06/2023

Event Date:

Practitioners are still finding themselves caught out all too often, exposing the client to risks in respect of costs, default judgment, and limitation – and no doubt equally exposing solicitors and their insurers to expensive and embarrassing negligence actions.

This webinar makes suggestions as to the circumstances in which use of the DCP is mandatory, how to avoid this, and how to get out of trouble if mistakes are made.
