Professional Liability Solicitors

Professional advice costs money, so you should be able to rely on it. When guidance is given by a professional that does not meet the required standard of care, the process of putting things right is time-consuming and expensive. It can also have wide-ranging consequences.

Our professional liability solicitors in Farnham and London have an impressive track record in robustly pursuing compensation claims for the effects of inadequate professional advice.

Surrey Lawyers: Pursuing Negligence Claims Against Solicitors And Barristers

This is a complex area of law. Usually the professional against whom a claim for negligence is brought will have the weight of a powerful insurance company behind them. They will be represented by a large law firm and will often have the support of a respected professional body. This means a specialist solicitor — one who is familiar with the standards that apply in the particular industry the disputed advice relates to — is of critical importance.

Expert Advice From A Committed Team

Our team is headed up by lawyer Mark Ridley, an expert in professional negligence and a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association. We understand that you may be disillusioned when you come to us, having already been let down by a professional. We make it our priority to build a relationship of trust with you and establish a clear strategy for your case from the outset. We handle claims against many types of advisor, including:

  • Solicitors and barristers — Missing deadlines, overlooking important information, poor advice or inadequate preparation of your case can all have significant repercussions.
  • Architects — Poor design or advice which contravenes planning laws should always be challenged.
  • Surveyors — Over or undervaluing property, errors in estimating the scale of a proposed development and providing defective certification are all examples of possible negligence by surveyors.
