Professional Negligence Lawyers at Forbes Solicitors

Unfortunately, sometimes professionals including solicitors and accountants get it wrong - so badly wrong that no reasonable professional would have acted in the way they did.

Professional Negligence cases are dealt with by Forbes Dispute Resolution Solicitors who have many years of experience in dealing with claims against other solicitors. In recent cases we have dealt with we have obtained compensation for our clients where a solicitor missed an entry on a conveyancing search and clients purchased a property without being made aware of its defects; a solicitor failed to issue Court proceedings within the right timeframe and clients were evicted from their business premises and when a solicitor failed to secure the release of a personal guarantee when a company was sold.

We have also advised where the professional concerned has been an accountant, auditor or architect.

We advise regarding the potential pitfalls in bringing a professional negligence claim as proving that the professional got it wrong may be the most straightforward aspect of the case. It is often more problematic to prove the link between the professional's advice and the loss suffered or to prove the amount of the loss.

At Forbes Solicitors we also consider if the more appropriate remedy for you is to follow the professional's complaints or disciplinary procedure.
