In some cases, you or your business could be left disadvantaged or out of pocket as a result. We can fight your corner in holding those that you put your faith in accountable.
We frequently assist in claims for professional negligence against:

- Solicitors and barristers;
- Accountants and financial advisors;
- Insurance Brokers; and
- Other professionals.
In addition to advising on the substantive issues, we also provide further practical advice in respect of insurance or regulatory matters arising from professional negligence or professional liability issues.
We understand that it can be extremely stressful to be let down by a professional that you trusted, and the knock-on effect can be unsettling. We navigate professional negligence claims with sensitivity, care and consideration to your individual needs and expectations.
We take pride in our ability to achieve results in professional negligence claims whilst ensuring these cases are succinct, well managed and cost-effective.
Our recent experience includes:
- Acting on behalf of trading companies against accounting firms who have acted negligently;
- Acting on behalf of the owner of a bespoke built property in a claim for negligence against the architect;
- Advising the purchaser of a residential property who relied on a full surveying report only to later find structural defects;
