Bill Radcliffe

Senior Associate, Manchester

Bill is an accredited mediator and has a strong background in commercial and insurance litigation.
Bill Radcliffe


Bill acts for and against solicitors, accountants, architects, surveyors, other construction professionals, financial advisers and insurance brokers.

Examples of Bill's professional indemnity experience includes:

  • Claim against a national firm of surveyors arising out of the preparation of a building survey report. The central issue was causation, specifically whether the defects in the property could be remedied, or whether demolition and rebuild was the only viable option.
  • Claim against a firm of solicitors arising out of advice on the purchase of a piece of land adjoining the client's garden. The land transaction developed into an acrimonious neighbour dispute. The client accepted a modest bagatelle payment in settlement of her claim under the LEI policy.
  • Claim against a firm of solicitors arising out of advice on the sale of a parcel of land. The defendant failed to include a restrictive covenant preventing development of the land after sale. The measure of loss was a complex issue and a pre-action deadlock over the issue seemed inevitable. To break the deadlock we obtained valuation evidence supporting the client's case and made a reasoned Part 36 offer using the valuation evidence. The offer was accepted and the claim was settled at the pre-action stage.

Bill's accreditation is from the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (1999) and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Group (2004).

Bill is a dual-qualified lawyer in both England and Hong Kong.
