Professional Negligence

We have been ranked as the top professional negligence solicitors in the UK by the independent legal review platform, ReviewSolicitors. Dealing with claims nationwide, we offer a free case assessment service and No Win, No Fee funding.

What we can do for you

If you are let down by a professional person such as a lawyer, an accountant, a surveyor or an architect, and you suffer substantial financial loss as a result, our professional negligence solicitors can assist you in pursuing a legal claim to recover compensation.

What it will cost

If your claim is worth comfortably more than the Small Claims Court limit (currently £10,000) we will be happy to consider funding your case on a No Win, No Fee basis. We also deal with cases on a privately paying basis and under Legal Expenses Insurance.

Why choose Slee Blackwell Solicitors?

We have been ranked as the number one firm dealing with professional negligence claims in the UK by the independent legal review platform, ReviewSolicitors*.

We have many years’ experience of dealing with complicated, high-value professional negligence claims, and we are proud of our track-record of success, which earned us a place in the 2018 edition of the prestigious legal directory, The Legal 500, for professional negligence law.

Free case assessment 

If you think you have a valid professional negligence claim that’s worth more than £10,000, then ask our professional negligence solicitors for a free case assessment. If it is a case that is suitable for ‘No Win, No Fee’ funding we will let you know.

If the merits of the claim are unclear and further investigation is required (such as a thorough review of a professional’s files) then we shall be happy to discuss funding for this work, perhaps on a fixed fee basis.
