Professional Negligence

Our Professional Negligence Team work across a variety of sectors advising on disputes involving: financial negligence, corporate clients, trusts, accountants, auditors, solicitors, brokers, financial advisers, surveyors, architects and engineers.

In particular the Team offers experience in advising financial institutions and companies bringing claims against professional advisors and conveyancing solicitors for negligence and negligent over-valuation claims against surveyors. Additionally the Team has had success with associated claims involving breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of warranty of authority against solicitors and other advisers. We also advise professionals and their employers in defending professional negligence claims.

More recently the Team has seen a growth in instructions from banks accused of negligence in respect of provision of information and in relation to internal systems for monitoring money laundering.
