Professional Negligence Solicitors, London

All professionals, whether accountants, financial advisors, architects, surveyors, solicitors or tradesmen, are expected to practice their specialism with reasonable skill and care.

Unfortunately, things can and do fail to go according to plan.

Unpicking exactly what went wrong and how the law applies in the particular circumstances isn’t always straightforward, but it’s important to take action quickly if losses are to be recovered or mitigated.

We’re well-known for giving sensible and pragmatic advice aimed at finding an effective resolution, as well as for using our vigorous advocacy skills to protect our clients’ interests.

Whether bringing or defending against a professional negligence claim, we offer a swift assessment of the issues you are facing and will also be transparent about the costs involved and the funding options available.

Case examples:
  • Advising a local branch of a national charity in relation to a defectively built swimming pool enclosure
  • Advising a large property ownership and development company in relation to a dilapidations claim negligently settled by Surveyors
  • Advising a large commercial organisation in relation to negligently given accounting advice

Bringing a Professional Negligence Claim

If a professional owed you a duty of care but breached that duty and caused you to suffer loss, the law entitles you to a remedy. Establishing these and other elements is vital if a professional negligence claim is to succeed, requiring a detailed and thorough investigation into all the aspects of the case.

The claim must also meet strict procedural requirements, including adhering to strict time limits, procedures and protocols. We can assist with all these matters and guide you through the entire process of bringing a professional negligence claim, ensuring you get the remedy you are entitled to.
