Where a professional person (this could be a solicitor, accountant, surveyor or financial adviser for example) fails to perform to reasonable professional standards and as a consequence of their breach of duty you have suffered loss you could be entitled to pursue a legal claim for negligence.
These cases are subject to the Professional Negligence Protocol which sets out the requirements and timescales for pursuing claims. We have years of experience pursuing and defending these claims. They are subject to time limits so you should act as soon as you become aware of an issue to make sure you do not lose your opportunity to seek redress. We are also experienced financial services litigation solicitors, in particular with claims acting both for and against banks for contested contractual, arrears and enforcement matters. If you are in dispute with your bank and are struggling to come to a resolution we may be able to assist you.
Professional negligence and financial services matters can be complex and often involve obtaining and reviewing substantial documentation to make sure the procedural and regulatory requirements in place were satisfied. This is something we can assist with and we can then advise you on the merits of your claim or it may be something that the Financial Ombudsman Service could put right for you. Litigation should always be a last resort and we work with independent mediators to resolve complaints however if all of that fails, we can pursue the matter through the Courts if necessary.
We review these matters on a case by case basis and offer various methods of funding.
