Are barristers more immune than solicitors?

My friends on Twitter had a discussion regarding the nomenclature used to describe lawyers. I wrote about this in another article (see previous post). This started a parallel discussion about the difference between a “barrister” and a “solicitor”.

So, what kind of barrister work might lead to a negligence claim? I thought it would be useful to look at this from a professional indemnity insurer’s point of view.
