Businesses and individuals are becoming more and more reliant on their professional advisors to guide them and represent their interests, but when the professional advisors get it wrong they should expect to be held to account.
Our specialist team of litigators have extensive experience in acting for claimants in claims against professional advisors and are ranked in The Legal 500 as experts in this field.
We conduct high value and complex claims on behalf of claimants (often through referrals from other professionals) for negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation in the following areas:
- Claims against Lawyers
- Claims against Finance Professionals
- Claims against Property Professionals
We have particular expertise in dealing with cases where there are allegations of fraud and professional negligence claims involving trusts and estates.
We employ a wide range of methods to help promote early settlement where this is possible. However, if a resolution cannot be found, we engage in and manage litigation as pro-actively, efficiently and cost effectively as possible to ensure success for our clients at trial.
Professionals will usually have the benefit of professional indemnity insurance so that, assuming liability is established, claimants will be able to recover some or all of their loss and the majority of their legal costs of bringing the claim. In any event, we provide our clients with clear advice about costs and the various ways of funding a professional negligence claim, alongside strategic and commercial advice at every step of the case.
