A claim against a legal practitioner by a person or entity with some connection with the person or entity that actually retained the practitioner is common. The risk of such a claim needs to be managed by the practitioner particularly when dealing with multiple persons, corporate bodies and through intermediaries. The risk is often exacerbated in the digital world.

This seminar examines situations where the risk commonly arises and the reasonable measures a practitioner should therefore take to identify the client and repudiate the existence of the solicitor/client relationship with others whose interests might be affected by the legal services provided or who may have authorised the practitioner to act for the ‘real’ client.
