Duncan Lewis Litigation Solicitors – Solicitors

 

When a client is let down by a solicitor, the fallout can be devastating both personally and financially.

 

Solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA) – but confronting a solicitor over professional negligence can be a daunting prospect for a client already reeling from being let down by their solicitor.

 

Duncan Lewis litigation solicitors can advise at any stage of a claim for professional negligence against a solicitor – and Duncan Lewis has departments covering most areas of law, including banking and finance, family law, criminal law, personal injury and medical negligence, mental health, immigration, property and housing and employment law. Our in house experts can advise on specific areas of the law in cases involving professional negligence claims against solicitors.

 

It will be necessary to prove that financial loss occurred as a result of a solicitor’s professional negligence – and this might involve a solicitor who:

  • Breaches confidentiality
  • Gives incorrect legal advice
  • Makes drafting errors in legal documents
  • Misses deadlines
  • Offers poor advice on wills and trusts
  • Provides negligent conveyancing services (eg failing to register a property or missing deadlines)
  • Settles a claim for less than it is worth.

Duncan Lewis is also one of the UK’s leading criminal law firms and can also advise on negligence in criminal defence services provided by a solicitor.

 

All solicitors will have a complaints procedure and it is advisable to speak to a solicitor or write a letter stating the nature of the complaint as soon as a problem occurs.

 

However, often a solicitor will defend any allegation of professional negligence robustly – Duncan Lewis can review the client file and advise on the best way forward, including preparing a claim for damages against a solicitor.
