Professional negligence describes a situation where someone who owes you a duty of skill and care fails to perform in accordance with that duty, and you suffer loss as a result. The duty may be owed by any professional, but claims are most commonly made against accountants, architects, valuers and surveyors.
Professional negligence disputes are always sensitive and can have considerable impact on a business’s reputation or an individual’s future. We have experience and expertise in dealing with claims involving a wide range of professionals, and in resolving them using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures.
Actions are complicated and may be expensive so it is important that you receive expert advice from the beginning. Please contact our experienced litigation team if you feel you have a claim, or if someone has indicated that they will be making a claim against you.
