Professional negligence lawyers

We are ready to take action and hold negligent professionals to account to right wrong.

Who can make a professional negligence claim?

Professionals such as lawyers, accountants, engineers or financial advisors have a responsibility to provide expert advice and a duty of care to their clients.

If the professional advice is significantly misleading, you may be able to claim compensation for the loss you suffer as a result of their negligence.

If you think you have a case for professional negligence, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible, and that’s where our team of expert negligence lawyers can help. You may have a professional negligence claim if you have suffered financially as the result of:

  • Misleading professional advice

  • Accounting errors

  • Incorrect financial advice

  • Engineering errors

  • Incorrect property valuations

Do you have a case?

We’re here to make the legal process as simple and stress-free as possible.  

Legal process for professional negligence claims

We listen and assess your case confidentially

During your initial consultation over the phone, we’ll take the time to listen and understand your individual needs. We’ll then map out the next steps and explain all the options available to you.  

We’ll build your case and keep you informed

Your expert legal team will work with you to gather all the evidence needed to support your claim. All evidence will be considered so we can assess your options and provide guidance tailored to your specific situation. 

We’ll negotiate where appropriate to settle your case

This may involve directly approaching the organisation concerned to engage in informal negotiations outside of the court process. We know that you’ve been through enough. Wherever possible we will seek to minimise any stress this process could have for you and resolve your claim in a way that is sensitive to your needs.

If required, go to court 

Only a small percentage of cases result in a court hearing. If this happens, we will be by your side; providing support, compassion and skilled legal representation every step of the way.

Resolve your case

We will passionately work to deliver the outcomes you deserve and maximise your entitlements.

No Win, No Fee*

We do our best up-front to make sure you understand your legal case, including whether your case is on our No Win, No Fee* basis.
