Have you lost faith in your professional advisors and need someone you can trust?
We handle a wide variety of disputes against various professionals, including claims against architects, solicitors, accountants, surveyors and valuers. In this area we specialise in acting for mortgage lender clients.
A particular area of expertise is dealing with claims against solicitors, for example where an error has been made by solicitors in terms of the advice which they have given to clients or documentation which has been incorrectly drawn up.
We appreciate that in this area of work, clients have already been let down by their professional advisors. We therefore seek to guide our clients carefully through the process of assessing whether negligence can be established and obtaining the appropriate expert evidence. We advise how to mitigate losses and where possible take steps to attempt to rectify the error which has been made.
In appropriate cases we encourage resolution of these disputes by alternative dispute resolution such as mediation, since we recognise that it can be extremely stressful for a client to be in dispute with their professional advisers.
We have recovered substantial compensation on behalf of clients both at trial and by way of settlements. We have been able to achieve a satisfactory outcome even in cases where there are limitation or causation issues, by negotiating the best possible terms for our client with the professional’s insurers or their solicitors.
We always endeavour to approach these cases in a practical way, encouraging early resolution of the dispute wherever possible. We present our client’s case to opponents in the strongest possible terms, whilst at the same time providing our clients with realistic advice as to the prospects of success.
