This chapter first considers the available defences (both complete and partial) to claims for the mis-selling of financial products. It then discusses the provisions of the Limitation Act 1980; the concept of causation; situations in which contributory negligence may arise; circumstances in which recourse for contribution may be available against third parties where a defendant becomes exposed to a claim for mis-selling; and the defence of contractual estoppel.
