Professional Negligence

Close up of hands in a business meeting

Whether it is to design a first class building, getting advice on a divorce or carrying out a survey on your new house, you instruct expert advisors to give you the right advice and assistance.

However, sometimes things go wrong.

We have litigators who specialise in claims against professionals.  We can draw on our experts in other departments to assist in getting you the best result.

We advise on claims against:

SurveyorsBuilding contractors
AccountantsQuantity Surveyors
Financial advisorsEngineers
Architects/DesignersMedical Professionals

Most claims against professionals are settled before a claim reaches a final hearing and there is a rising trend for claims to be resolved without the need to issue proceedings at all.  Mediation is becoming increasingly popular as an efficient way of resolving disputes.

Most professionals are insured against claims which mean that payment of damages is rarely a problem.  However, funding a claim is a key issue for clients.  We will give you clear advice on costs and find the best funding solution for your claim.  The litigation funding market is expanding and in many cases insurance policies are available.

Our recent experience includes:

  • advising on a complex £6m commercial building project involving negligent architects and contract management
  • settling a claim against a negligent solicitor who failed to lodge a £75,000 damages claim in time
  • advising a religious institution on a negligent surveyor’s report on a building purchase
