North West Local Authority Seminar

We are pleased to invite you to our half-day North West Local Authority Seminar at the DWF Manchester office on Monday 9 October 2017.

Our speakers will present you with an update on the current "hot topics" facing Local Authorities, including;

Highways Litigation Update by Mark Fowles - An overview of recent case law, code of practice and its impact. Are your highway inspectors and contractors appropriately trained? Have you considered all of the relevant principles for a risk based approach? 

Tree Roots by Gabriel Fay - Potential or Real risk? Do you have a defensible tree risk management policy and strategy to defend tree root subsidence claims? An overview of case law to provide guidance on defending subsidence property damage.

Care Homes by Sharon Dysart - Have you risk assessed? Do you know the cost? Here we examine the risks facing local authorities in light of the increasing number of claims relating to accidents in care homes and the rise in those claims relating to pressure sores. We will consider how Local Authorities can review their systems and procedures from a risk managements perspective and the documentation that should be in place.

We look forward to seeing you there.
