If an architect makes a mistake or provides a bad service, rectifying their work can be very expensive and time consuming. Our professional negligence lawyers could help you recover any money you’ve lost as a result of architect negligence.

Our experienced lawyers have the expertise needed to help you make a successful architect negligence claim. We have offices based across the country and our team has a proven track record of success in professional negligence cases.

We might be able to help if your architect failed to:

  • Secure planning permission
  • Provide adequate designs/drawings
  • Specify materials
  • Offer correct advice
  • Stay within a specified budget
  • Supervise builders/contractors satisfactorily

After you’ve got in touch with us, we’ll discuss how to progress with your case and the funding options available. Our team offers a variety of funding options for architect negligence cases including fixed fees and private retainers. We also offer Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) and After The Event (ATE) insurance.
