Abstract

Professionals may be liable to legal action over matters such as giving negligent advice to their clients. But their duty of care extends further, to such matters as preventing the risk of injury on their premises, as the following case illustrates. In earlier articles, I have made some ovservations concerning the liability that accountants and other professions can incur as a result of: (a) their giving negligent advice or their negligent handling of clients' matters; (b) notices and signs displayed in their offices; (c) their partners. In this concluding article, some observations are made concerning the liability that accountants and other professional can incur from their premises.
