Tann v Herrington [2009] EWHC 445 (Ch); [2009] WLR (D) 89

Where a partner entrusted with the responsibility of dealing with all aspects of the firm’s professional indemnity insurance failed to fulfil his obligations, a liability in damages to a client, for which the firm’s professional indemnity insurer had refused indemnity, was a liability to be borne personally by the partner because he was responsible for notifying the insurers that a claim had been made and his delay in doing so caused the refusal of indemnity.”
