Duncan Lewis Litigation Solicitors – Barristers


Barristers are trained to perform at a very high level and under pressure – but sometimes things can go wrong between a barrister and a client and the relationship breaks down.


If a barrister has acted in a way that would constitute professional negligence, it is possible to make a claim against them for compensation, including claims involving:

  • Advising incorrectly that a case has no merit
  • Drafting errors in legal papers
  • Failing to advise on appeals processes
  • Misadvising on plea in criminal case
  • Missing deadlines
  • Negligent or incorrect legal advice
  • Not being fully prepared for a hearing
  • Not quantifying damages accurately
  • Wrong advice on settlement of claim (eg Part 36 offers in PI claims).
