The Equitable Life Assurance Society v Bowley

Enter your summary content here

Professional indemnity engagements are a staple of Ince & Co's practice.

We acted for one of the directors of the Equitable Life Assurance Society in a claim brought by the Society in relation to bonus payments made to its members. In one of a number of judgments arising from this lengthy and high profile litigation, the Court held that the duty owed in law by a non-executive director to a company did not differ in expression from that owed by an executive director, but that in application it might and usually would do so.
