Welcome to the second edition of our regular update for the retail sector

This year we will be focusing on key retail claims types, where a little attention could help your claims experience, whilst keeping you up to date with what’s happening in the retail and legal marketplace.

We also have an important warning from guest writer and MD of Slip Safety Services, Christian Harris, who discusses the common misconception that textured or profiled floors are automatically anti-slip.

If that’s not enough to brighten your February, we take a look at what the firm’s been up to since our last issue, examine the new timeline for the Civil Liability Bill now it has received Royal Assent, and give you the lowdown on how GDPR has affected legal requests for medical records.
