Professional Negligence

We understand that anyone who has already been let down by a professional will be reluctant to place their trust in another. Our professional negligence solicitors therefore aim to rebuild your confidence in professionals and to earn that trust by providing a first class service when dealing with your professional negligence compensation claim.

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.

Free Initial 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.

Areas of Specialism:

Professional negligence claims against solicitors and barristers are one of our core areas of expertise. Over the years we have achieved many notable successes for clients who have been let down by their lawyers.
Most prudent purchasers arrange for a survey to be carried out before they buy a property. However, surveys do not always reveal serious structural problems affecting the building and when this is due to an oversight by the surveyor then a professional negligence claim may be the best solution.
We rely on accountants to provide us with clear and accurate advice on financial and taxation matters. When an accountant makes a mistake it can prove very costly, leaving the client with no alternative but to make a claim for compensation.
A mistake by an architect can result in serious financial loss. When this occurs our team is here to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
Veterinary mistakes can have devastating consequences. Unfortunately our legal system only allows claims to be made for purely financial losses. As a result most vet negligence cases fall within the ambit of the small claims court where it is rarely economic to retain a solicitor. However, financial loss does occasionally exceed the £10,000 small claims court threshold and on those occasions our specialist team are here to offer advice and guidance.
We are highly experienced in recovering compensation for the losses suffered by people who have been let down by their financial advisor.
