Professional Negligence Solicitors

Professional Negligence Claims

We advise on professional negligence claims involving a wide range of professionals, from solicitors and valuers to patent agents and insurance brokers. We have experience of acting for both claimants and defendants and are instructed by private individuals, SMEs and institutional lenders.

Quick Enquiry


Compensation

As a first step, you will want to know whether there has been professional negligence and what loss you may be able to recover, or be liable for, as a result. Once these issues have been identified, and before proceeding down the litigation route, we will help you consider the likelihood of recovery and the best tactical approach for a speedy and cost-effective resolution.


Legal Support for Claimants and Defendants

Where we are able to help you is in recognising your circumstances. Every client and case is different and will require an individual approach.

For institutional lenders we are able to take a portfolio-wide approach, providing regular updates and satisfying any specific reporting requirements. On this larger scale, we are able to consider issues of insurance coverage and advise on commercial resolutions and litigation risk.

The private individual or SME will have different requirements. The first issue may be establishing a client relationship that will rebuild confidence in professionals having been previously let down. The private individual and SME is also more likely to favour a speedy resolution as the effect of the negligence may have a significant financial impact.


Added Value

Professional negligence claims are generally dealt with by solicitors who specialise in defending these matters and acting on behalf of insurers. Not only do we have considerable experience in dealing with these types of firm, but we also have members of our team who have an insight into how they defend matters having previously acted on the defendant side.


For specialist professional negligence claims advice, please contact Ben Holt on 0117 314 5478.

The team has a broad range of experiences across practice areas, allowing them to draw upon these in complex commercial cases; for example those including company, property or trust law issues.
