Not only… but also

Keith Gordon looks at a case which considers the extended period sometimes available to claimants in cases of professional negligence

This article concerns a case which considered the Limitation Act 1980, which applies only in England and Wales. The article does not cover every aspect of the Limitation Act 1980; for example, the common practice of entering into stand-still agreements so as to avoid claims being rushed shortly before a time limit expires. Accordingly, even more so than usual, readers should treat the article as no more than an introduction to the subject.
