Professional advisers don’t always give the right advice.
A professional has a duty of care to provide competent advice to his or her clients. This duty is breached when inadequate or incorrect advice leads directly to a client’s loss.
Defining and dealing with professional negligence with expert legal help
If you’ve suffered loss as a result of the actions (or inactions) of your professional advisor, you can bring a claim for professional negligence. Most professionals are insured, which improves your chances of success in recovering any loss – providing you have a well-founded claim.

Funding and insurance for professional negligence claims
We understand that the negligence associated with your claim may have caused you financial restriction or difficulty, but we don’t believe this should prevent you from pursuing a claim. That’s why we offer a number of funding options, such as the use of a legal expenses policy, ‘after the event’ insurance policies, private funding, and conditional-fee or damages-based agreements. We assess every case at the outset, and will discuss all funding options with you to identify the best for your needs and circumstances.
