Capita Alternative Fund Services (Guernsey) Ltd & Anor v Drivers Jonas (A Firm) [2011] EWHC 2336 (Comm) (09 September 2011)

This was a substantial claim for professional negligence. On any view, it was a bad result for the Defendant surveyors, who have been found liable for damages of £18.05 million. However, in one fundamental respect, the result should be greeted with some relief by professional indemnity insurers. In short, it could have been a lot worse.
