Barristers are highly qualified professionals, but sometimes they make costly mistakes. Our experienced professional negligence lawyers represent individuals and businesses who have received negligent advice from barristers. We can also act for you if you’re an insurer or solicitor who has experienced professional negligence from a barrister.

We could help if your barrister has:

  • Failed to meet a court deadline, meaning that your claim is struck out.
  • Given negligent advice to settle a claim for less than it is worth
  • Provided negligent advocacy
  • Not drafted the court documents properly

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 including fixed fees and private retainers. We also offer Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) and After The Event (ATE) insurance.
