Our professional negligence practice covers claims against:-
- Legal professionals
- Surveyors and valuers
- Construction professionals
- Financial advisors
We bring to this work the same professional approach which is evident across our dispute resolution practice. The manner in which such claims are conducted is precisely regulated by the court’s rules and with most defendants represented by insurers, whose business is to put all claims to rigorous testing – both with regard to liability and the quantum of damages – it is essential that we help our clients to understand the process, the role they must play and the procedure to be followed.
The parties to such claims are required by the courts to adopt as constructive an approach as possible, at all times considering the desirability of seeking a negotiated settlement and we ensure that clients understand the alternatives, in particular by analysing the potential cost/benefit of any course of action.
If you are in any doubt as to whether a particular situation gives rise to a potential professional negligence claim, please feel free to contact us to discuss what might be involved and the basis on which we would be happy to act for you.
