How can we help?
To access legal support from just £125 per hour arrange your free no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your business requirements.
Our team can assist you across all areas of dispute resolution, including:
In professional negligence cases we’ll weigh up the potential cost to a business of establishing a case against how that business can best achieve its desired outcome.
Many legal claims that arise from negligent advice must follow the steps set out in the professional negligence pre-action protocol. During this initial stage of your case we will explore all alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options.
Professional liability claims have strict limitation periods (the time within which legally you can bring a claim). The exact period will depend on whether your claim is for breach of contract or whether it’s a claim in tort (for negligence). Either way it’s critical to get advice as soon as you think you may have incurred loss or damage as a result of poor professional advice. If you try to bring a claim beyond the limitation period it’s possible that your claim could be disallowed.
Our professional liability team works with businesses that have received negligent professional advice, including advice from:
It’s our job to nail down the elements of your case before attempting ADR or embarking on litigation. We will need to show not just that you received advice that was negligent but also that the nature of the advice constituted a breach of duty on the part of the advisor. This could be a breach of a duty of care, a breach of a fiduciary duty, a beach of a statutory duty or misrepresentation.
We must also be able to demonstrate that you suffered direct financial loss as a result of the negligent advice.
We work with companies of all sizes across a range of sectors. All have been affected in some way by poor professional advisors in markets such as financial services and insurance. We also act for advisors facing allegations of negligence, particularly in cases involving PPI excesses.
Many of our clients are start-ups in new and evolving industries and successful venture-backed enterprises.
Advisors in the professional sphere such as actuaries, solicitors and those in the financial services industry are usually required by law to maintain sufficient insurance cover to meet any potential claims This enables successful claimants to recover financial losses and all or at least a significant proportion of legal costs incurred in bringing a claim.
In some cases the result of negligent advice can seriously threaten the viability of a business. So this is a practice area that we focus heavily on. And it’s one in which we invest seriously in talented lawyers. This allows us to provide a service that’s proactive and responsive and where our advice is inclusive and tailored specifically to the needs of each client.
