We understand the embarrassment and stress that may be experienced by a barrister when facing a professional negligence claim. We will do everything that we can to minimise that stress. You will of course appreciate that if a claimant persists with an unmeritorious claim, there will be little we can do at Bar Mutual to prevent them from doing so.
If we take the view that the claim against you has merit, we will take immediate steps to settle it on the best available terms with your consent. We always try to ensure that the terms of any settlement reached include a confidentiality clause.
