Claiming compensation for professional negligence

Sadly, none of us can know everything about everything and so there are many times in life when we need to rely on a professional’s expert opinion, whether the specialist advice we seek is legal, financial, technical or otherwise sector-specific.

Of course, the vast majority of professional advice is given by trained practitioners who are fully-competent in their field but, in a few instances, acting on poor or careless advice can have serious consequences – from missed opportunities or wasted time to lost money or substantial costs – and under these circumstances you may be able to claim compensation for professional negligence.

When can our dispute resolution team help?

Our dispute resolution team is experienced in bringing successful compensation claims for clients who have suffered as a consequence of negligent professional advice.

In reviewing your case, we will take the time to understand the issues and listen carefully to your point of view. Perhaps the professional you consulted gave advice on a matter outside their field of expertise or passed the work on to a less-experienced colleague who lacked adequate knowledge, or perhaps you were on the receiving end of flawed or inadequate advice.

Our proactive and thorough approach has helped us achieve excellent results for clients, even in the most contentious disputes – we have brought successful claims against a variety of professionals including barristers and solicitors, accountants, architects, engineers, surveyors, builders, tax advisors, insurance brokers and media consultants.
