Professional Negligence

Professional negligence occurs where a professional adviser breaches the duty and quality of care it owes to its client.  If the adviser fails to act with reasonable care and skill and that failure causes its client loss, the client might be able to bring a claim against the adviser to recover that loss.  Often, the adviser will have Professional Indemnity insurance cover in place to cover such situations.

We provide specialist professional negligence advice to both individuals and businesses where there has been fraudulent and/or dishonest behaviour.

Examples include:

  • Claims against solicitors:

    The transfer of money to a fraudster’s bank account as a result of the solicitor’s email account being hacked.

    The failure to identify fraud indicators in conveyancing transactions, property investment schemes and corporate transactions

    The failure to provide adequate advice in relation to commercial litigation claims which involve allegations of fraud

    Misuse or theft of client money

  • Claims against accountants:

    The failure to identify fraud when carrying out an audit or accounts preparatory work

  • Claims against insurance brokers:

    The failure to obtain adequate insurance cover relevant to an organisation’s fraud risk

  • We help clients to formulate their claim and navigate the legal process to achieve a resolution at the earliest opportunity. We provide support and friendly professionalism at every step of the way.  We appreciate the emotional and financial impact for victims of fraud and so where there are sufficiently good prospects of the professional negligence claim succeeding, we will consider fee arrangements which enable our client defer a proportion of our fees pending the successful conclusion of the claim.
