Taking legal action against a bank for professional negligence can be a stressful experience – clients trust their bank to offer the best advice and service and when things go wrong, the results can not only be financially disastrous, but can have a knock-on effect and may affect credit rating, or getting a loan or a mortgage.
Banks have a duty of care to their personal customers and business clients – and legislation is there to protect a customer if a bank is guilty of professional negligence.
