There is nothing you can do to prevent a client from suing you in your role as actuary and as society becomes more litigious, it’s likely that actuaries, like doctors and many other professionals may find themselves in the witness box defending themselves against professional negligence claims.
However, alongside good practice, there are plenty of steps that you can take to minimise the risk of a lawsuit and put yourself in the best possible position to defend the suit. Rory Kirrane, a partner of Mason Hayes+Curran, has a lot of experience in dealing with professional negligence claims.
In a lively presentation, Rory will give some insight into how to minimise the risk of a professional negligence claim being brought against you and will provide you with an understanding of the duty of care owed to the client.
Rory’s presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
