What is professional negligence?
Professional negligence is broadly defined as the failure of a professional to act with reasonable care and skill when working with a client.
If the service provided by the professional is defective or unsatisfactory and you or your business has suffered financial loss, you may be able to make a professional negligence claim.
Professional negligence claims can be brought against professionals who have skills in a specialised trade and services such as financial advisors, accountants, tax advisors, lawyers, surveyors or brokers.
Our professional negligence lawyers have many years of experience in disputes of this nature. We can advise clients who have suffered losses as a result of:
To make a claim for professional negligence, you must establish that the professional owed you a duty of care, that they breached that duty (for example, by providing advice which fell short of an acceptable standard), and that you suffered losses as a result.
You may also be entitled to compensation if you can show a professional failed to exercise reasonable care and skill in the provision of their professional services, in breach of their obligations to you.
Our team can help you understand the key aspects of bringing and defending a claim, and advise you of the highest possible compensation to which you may be entitled. In many cases, we can offer flexible litigation funding options, further enabling you to minimise the risk of litigation.
Claims against financial advisors and financial services providers can arise when:

We can help you understand everything you need to know about how to bring a professional negligence claim against a lawyer, barrister or other legal professional.
It's important to understand that strict timeframes may apply to lodging a professional negligence claim. People who seek advice from a professional have a right to be advised with care and skill, however, you may only be entitled to compensation if you act within the required timeframe (generally between 3-6 years). It's imperative to seek legal help as soon as possible to stand the best chance of recouping your losses.
Professional negligence claims are complex and difficult to understand and pursue. Our team has the experience and expertise to investigate your claim and guide you through the legal process to recover your losses. No matter how you came across a professional's services , if they let you down, we can maximise the extent of recoverable losses on your behalf.
When working with you, we consider your circumstances from both a legal and practical perspective. We may be able to run your claim on a No Win - No Fee* basis - meaning that you will only need to pay legal fees if we obtain a successful outcome for you. We can also help you access alternative litigation funding options and ensure that you suffer minimal financial disruption in the pursuit of your claim.
