Seeking professional advice when it comes to your finances, business, home or personal matters, can often be an important reality of life.
When a professional falls short of the duty of care that they owe their clients, it can have devastating results, leading to financial loss.
If you put your trust in a professional and they let you down, you may be able to claim compensation for the loss you suffer as a result of their negligence.
Professionals such as lawyers, accountants, engineers and financial advisors have a legal duty to do their jobs to a minimum standard of competence. If they don’t, and you are financially disadvantaged by their actions or advice, we can help.

What professional negligence compensation can I claim?
If your claim is successful in court, the court normally calculates the compensation as the amount that is required to be paid to return your financial position to what it would have been if the professional had not been negligent. The compensation could include any profits you lost and any expenses you incurred while trying to fix the problem.
