Professional Negligence Disputes
Sometimes even the professionals can get it wrong and, when they do, it can result in a claim for negligence against them. Our team can assist you with pursuing or defending such a claim.
What we do
We can help individuals and companies to recover their losses by pursuing claims in a cost effective manner against professionals who have provided a negligent service or negligent advice.
We also assist professionals looking to defend themselves against negligence claims, including working with their professional indemnity insurers.
As part of our service, we will advise clients on the obligations imposed upon them by the Pre-Action Protocol for Professional Negligence (which sets out a series of steps which must be completed prior to the issue of a claim) , as well as guiding you through the litigation process if Court proceedings become necessary. We can identify and instruct suitable expert witnesses to support your claim, who are crucial to the success of almost all professional negligence cases. We are also experienced in settling professional negligence disputes through the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods which can enable parties to reach a swift and cost-effective resolution.
Who we do it for
Our team is experienced in both pursuing and defending negligence claims for commercial clients and individuals involving a variety of professionals, including fellow solicitors, accountants, architects, surveyors, auditors and financial advisers.
