Professional advice is part and parcel of business life. It is also increasingly important in our personal lives. Whether you are providing that advice or taking it, there will inevitably be situations where it doesn’t go to plan. This can lead to costly repercussions.

Professional negligence is an area of special expertise for our commercial litigation team. Our team of lawyers have a long and established track record in acting in high value professional negligence cases, often helping to define the law in this area.

Most professionals have the benefit of insurance, which means that claimants ought to be able to recover some or all of their loss, as well as the majority of their legal costs. Whether you are looking to bring or defend a claim for professional negligence, we provide our clients with clear advice about costs and the various ways of funding a claim. Our lawyers pride themselves on their ability to give practical, strategic and commercial advice at every stage of the claim.

Our experience in both representing and defending clients in professional negligence cases has given us an in-depth understanding of the issues faced by both sides, and of strategies for bringing disputes to a swift, satisfactory conclusion.
