Duncan Lewis Professional Negligence Solicitors represent corporate businesses and individuals who have incurred a loss as a result of poor or negligent advice from professional advisors – or who are currently experiencing disputes with professionals, such as solicitors or surveyors.
Loss as a result of professional negligence might involve a financial loss, a missed opportunity, a deal that falls through – or being unable to proceed with legal action or an investment plan because of poor advice from a professional.
These are just some examples of the kind of loss that might constitute professional negligence.
Businesses and individuals rely on professionals like solicitors, surveyors, conveyancers, accountants and tax advisers – and professionals owe a duty of care to their clients, who depend on their advice, experience and professional knowledge to make often life changing or crucial business decisions.
When a professional adviser lets a client down by failing to give the correct professional advice in a timely manner – for example, if a solicitor missed the deadline for a property transaction or serving a court order – the results can be devastating, both personally and commercially.
Duncan Lewis professional negligence lawyers can help clients who have suffered as a result of professional negligence to recover financial compensation for losses incurred – whether the loss was caused by wrong advice from a solicitor or barrister, tax adviser or accountant, or a surveyor, estate agent, builder or architect.
