We have one of the UK’s largest teams of professional negligence lawyers, representing individuals and businesses who’ve received bad advice from solicitors.

Our lawyers can help in a wide range of situations involving negligent advice, including:

  • Negligent advice to settle a claim for less than it’s worth
  • Failing to meet a court deadline, meaning that your claim is struck out
  • Missing a limitation date

If you’ve received poor or negligent legal advice, we can help you recover the money you’ve lost as a result. Our broad client base includes:

  • Insurers
  • Commercial companies
  • Individuals
  • Other legal firms

We offer a range of funding options to fit your situation, such as fixed fees and private retainers. We also offer conditional fee agreements, which mean you won’t pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.

We also have close relationships with After the Event (ATE) insurance providers. ATE insurance is designed to protect you should your claim for insurance broker negligence be unsuccessful for any reason. This means that any legal costs owed to your opponent will be covered should you lose.

You can also benefit from a fixed fee review of your solicitor negligence claim, where we can provide you with guidance on how best to move your case forward.

We have the experience and expertise to make a successful solicitor negligence claim on your behalf and our lawyers understand the impact that negligent legal advice can have on you and your business. We’ll fight to make sure you receive the compensation you need to cover any financial losses you’ve suffered as a result of this negligence.
