Professional negligence solicitors

All professionals, whether solicitors, financial advisers, accountants, architects or surveyors, are expected to provide a high standard of skill and care to their clients.  Where their failure to meet those standards has resulted in a loss to you as a business or as an individual, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you feel that your professional advisor has made a mistake, we can discuss with you your particular situation and advise on whether you have a professional negligence claim.  Our emphasis is on seeking to settle the dispute by negotiation or mediation to avoid costly and time-consuming litigation.  We have the necessary expertise to handle your claim as easily and as efficiently as possible, and can advise whether a mistake has been made and whether that mistake can be remedied. 

If litigation cannot be avoided, we can advise and, where appropriate, offer conditional fee agreements backed up by after the event insurance.

Legal advice should be sought as soon as possible as in most claims of this nature, a claim should be brought within six years from the date of the negligence.  Occasionally, this may be extended where the negligence only becomes apparent at a later date.  In those cases, the relevant limitation period is three years from the date of knowledge of the facts, with a long stop date of 15 years.
