Professional Negligence
  1. Professional Negligence

    The team has extensive experience of acting for clients on claims where loss is alleged to have resulted from a professional’s negligence.

    We advise and represent both claimants and defendants on claims against professional firms, including lawyers, auditors, tax advisers, actuaries and surveyors. Our specialist construction and engineering team advise on claims against professionals in that area.

    Our work for claimants has ranged from advising on relatively small claims to those against the biggest City firms where losses have run into many millions.

    We recognise that, given the trust vested by the client in a professional adviser, these claims are not the same as other forms of commercial claim, and we aim to manage the relationship with our clients with this in mind.
