UK: England and Wales: tort - negligence - determining the scope of duty and the extent of liability of professional advisers

The Supreme Court delivered judgment today in two related decisions - Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton UK LLP [2021] UKSC 20 and Khan v Meadows [2021] UKSC 21 - that, together, set out the framework for determining the scope of the duty of care, and the extent of liability, owed by professional advisers in the tort of negligence.  Each case was heard by the same panel of seven justices; summaries are available here and here.
