Professional negligence

When you ask for professional advice that is what you expect. It is an unfortunate fact of life that professional advisers do not always get things right.

If you ask a professional advisor for help, the last outcome you imagine is one where their advice causes a problem. Surveyors, architects, solicitors and accountants are all bound by professional standards. They owe you a duty of reasonable care and skill. When their advice is negligent, damage or some form of loss may occur. This is where we can assist.

Our lawyers will explain the process of making a claim, what it may cost and how long it will take. Dealing with a professional negligence dispute can take time. Demonstrating what has failed – and the losses suffered can be complicated.  Your dispute will proceed under the Professional Negligence Pre-Action protocol.  We explain everything simply. Together we explore options, agree the best course of action – this could be litigation, negotiation or mediation but we explain each, and what they mean. And finally we aim to secure the best possible outcome for you.
