Our team regularly acts for claimants in claims against professionals including accountants, lawyers, actuaries and investment fund managers. We also have experience of defending professional services firms in investigations and prosecutions by professional bodies such as the Institute of Actuaries, the FRC and the Institute of Chartered Accountants. Many of the claims on which we act are high-value and involve novel or unusual points of law.

Our aim is to resolve cases swiftly where possible, making successful use of the procedures set out in the Professional Negligence Pre-Action Protocol. Cases are sometimes resolved early through the use of Part 36 Offers as well as through negotiations, whether face-to-face or with the assistance of an impartial mediator.

We acted for an individual in his high-profile litigation against a leading bank, and are instructed in relation to a professional negligence claim against his previous legal advisers, and their professional indemnity insurers. The claim involves a number of alleged breaches of duty in relation to the historic management of the litigation.

We act for a high net worth individual in respect of a negligent valuation carried out in respect of the family estate.  We are also investigating allegations of professional negligence against the family’s former solicitors.
