Limited Liability

Generally, the liability of a solicitor (arising out of his/her professional practise) is unlimited. However, under Section 44 of the Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2008, a solicitor may limit his/her liability to a degree not less than the current minimum sum for which a solicitor must carry insurance for (negligence) claims.

That figure is, currently, €1,500,000.
