When you engage Professionals to work for you, you are entitled to expect them to work to the standards of a reasonable professional in their line of work. We are often called upon to advise, assist and represent clients in claims for damages against professionals including accountants, solicitors, surveyors and veterinary surgeons for losses caused by their professional negligence.
The Professional Negligence Pre-Action Protocol provides a platform for trying to resolve professional Negligence claims without resorting to court proceedings. However, when a claim is not settled under the Pre-Action Protocol procedure and court proceedings are necessary, we have an excellent track record of resolving the claims by means of negotiation, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution without the need to proceed to a formal court trial. What’s more, we assist clients in formulating complaints issued to professional bodies.
