Commercial Transaction Negligence Claims

Duncan Lewis Professional Negligence Solicitors – Commercial Transaction Negligence Claims


Commercial transactions that are mishandled can result in financial loss, as well as loss of opportunities for businesses and individuals if a solicitor gave wrong advice or missed a deadline during a commercial transaction.


Commercial transaction claims involving professional negligence may relate to a property transaction, corporate law, a business takeover, mergers and acquisitions, a partnership transaction – or contract law, such as a commercial agreement to supply goods or services.


If a solicitor who is negligent makes drafting errors in a contract, fails to serve legal documents, or offers wrong legal advice to a corporate or private client in a commercial transaction, the outcome may be disastrous and cause long-term damage to a client’s business.


Duncan Lewis professional negligence solicitors can call on the expertise of the firm’s own commercial law department to pinpoint exactly where a commercial transaction may have gone wrong as a result of a solicitor who is negligent.

Making a Professional Negligence Claim


Clients who suffer financial loss or other loss as a result of a solicitor who is negligent should first make a complaint through the solicitor’s own complaints procedure.


The Legal Ombudsman can also adjudicate in cases where a solicitor is negligent in a matter relating to a commercial transaction by a member of the public (consumer) but any compensation awarded may be modest.


Clients considering suing a solicitor for professional negligence have six years from the date of the event constituting negligence – or three years from the date they first realised negligence had occurred – in which to make a claim.
