Solicitor withdrawing before trial

Professional Negligence Claims against Lawyers

We acted for our client in a claim against his former solicitors who withdrew from acting for our client less than one week before a ten-day trial in a claim which had been running for years and was worth millions. As a result our client had no alternative other than to discontinue the claim, having had insufficient time to instruct new representatives who could adequately prepare for the trial.

Our client’s negligence claim was based on the loss of chance in relation to the proceedings, and discontinuing the claim also caused significant loss to our client. Our client’s negligence claim was settled at mediation for a substantial financial sum.
