Professional Negligence

You expect the best service.

We can help when you don’t get it.


“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur” – Red Adair

It is an unfortunate fact of life that sometimes professionals fail to supply services with the level of skill and care that a client is entitled to expect.  Even with the best of intentions, professionals can make mistakes or miss an important point that might have far reaching consequences for you or your business.

Whether that consequence is purely financial or whether there are practical implications that need rectifying, we have the depth and quality of experience to help you obtain a fair redress.

We have successfully recovered compensation caused by the negligence of professionals from a variety of industries, including;

  • Solicitors;
  • Barristers;
  • Accountants;
  • Insurance Brokers;
  • Independent Financial Advisors;
  • Architects; and
  • Surveyors/Valuers

In nearly all instances, raising a dispute with a professional involves dealing with the firm of solicitors appointed by their insurer.  We have extensive experience at negotiating with and litigating against insurer’s solicitors and we understand the variety of factors that determine their mindset. This allows us to identify for you the tactical approach that is most likely to yield the outcome you want, at a cost that is proportionate to the matters in dispute.

Following a detailed assessment of the merits of your claim, raising a dispute with a professional will usually start with a detailed letter of claim being sent to the firm that has been negligent following which a period of investigation and negotiation will normally follow to ensure both you and the accused professionals have a precise understanding of the points in dispute and the options available for the progression of the dispute.

We will always discuss with you the merits of attempting less formal and costly methods of resolving a negligence dispute, such as mediation, negotiation or arbitration and if none of those options are appropriate in your circumstances, you can be assured by our long track record of successfully obtaining compensation from professionals through the courts.
