Dispute Resolution

Professional negligence

If you believe that you have a claim for professional negligence whether it’s issues with a design for a first-class building, advice on a divorce or a survey that has been carried out, we can assist you in getting the best result for your claim. 


We advise on professional negligence claims against

  • Surveyors
  • Solicitors
  • Accountants
  • Financial advisors
  • Architects/designers
  • Building contractors
  • Barristers
  • Quantity surveyors
  • Engineers
  • Medical 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 £75,000 damages claim in time
  • advising a religious institution on a negligent surveyor’s report on a building purchase
