The thought of suing a solicitor can fill individuals and businesses with trepidation, especially after incurring financial loss as a result of professional negligence.
However, taking legal action for professional negligence against a solicitor is one of the most common professional negligence claims.
Solicitors are often the lynchpin of business and domestic transactions – and negligent legal advice can result in disaster for both families and commercial firms.
Legal processes must be based not only on sound advice – but often must also be carried out within strict time limits. Good legal advice is no good at all if a solicitor or legal adviser misses a crucial deadline for serving court papers, makes a drafting error – or fails to complete the legal paperwork for a business transaction.
