Our experienced team of litigators act for claimants in bringing claims against professionals when they get it wrong.
We have the expertise to understand what is needed to win professional negligence claims. We know when to settle and when to litigate and we don’t lose focus on the needs of our clients.
Businesses and individuals are becoming more and more reliant on their professional advisors to guide them and represent their interests. Lawyers, property professionals and specialists working in insurance or financial services have a responsibility to their clients to undertake such work with reasonable care and skill.
We conduct high value and complex claims on behalf of claimants (often through referrals from other professionals) for negligence, breach of contract, misrepresentation and fraud against the following professions:
Professionals will usually have the benefit of insurance so that, assuming liability is established, claimants will be able to recover some or all of their loss and the majority of their legal costs of bringing the claim. In any event, we provide our clients with clear advice about costs and the various ways of funding a claim, alongside strategic and commercial advice at every step of the case.
