Professional Negligence

Professional Negligence

We know that there are occasions when our business and commercial clients are let down in their business dealings by someone they trust. It is always distressing and can be very damaging.

If you receive poor service from a professional (for example, an accountant, surveyor or lawyer) whose organisation boasts membership of various professional bodies apparently ensuring best practice, the feeling of being let down can be even greater. Complaints against a professional services company are sometimes met with an unhelpful response, even when there is a regulatory body to whom you can turn. Our litigation team can help you cut through the jargon that may be used to muddy the waters if your initial complaint is not treated seriously.

Using our services to pursue a negligence claim shows that your business means business. Once a claim is presented, we often find that your supplier will wish to settle; we will be able to look for alternative methods of resolving disputes apart from bringing the matter to court.
