Our vast experience acting for employees makes us extremely effective Professional Negligence Solicitors in employment cases. As the leading employment team in the UK, we will know intuitively if you have been properly advised in an employment dispute, and can quickly assess whether errors have been made. Taking prompt action can save you both time and money.
A professional negligence claim could arise if, for example, you have received wrong advice from your Employment solicitor, or other employment advisor. For example they may have failed to inform you of (or comply with) a time limit, or they have under-settled your claim without your agreement or without explaining what your case was really worth. In those circumstances, you may have a claim against them for professional negligence.
A fixed fee will be charged for an initial assessment, depending the on complexity and volume of papers to be considered. In successful cases, most of your costs are generally recoverable from the advisors found to be negligent. If we consider that your claim is particularly strong then we may be able to offer a "no win no fee" arrangement under a conditional fee agreement.
More often than not, we manage to settle disputes without the need to go to court. Litigation can be an extremely stressful experience and where possible we try to avoid this. However, if proceedings become necessary, we will pursue these vigorously on your behalf.

“The thought of pursuing a professional negligence claim against a firm of solicitors was initially daunting, but I felt in safe hands throughout the process. The contrast between the service provided by Slater & Gordon compared to my previous solicitors could not have been more stark. Slater & Gordon gave me the confidence to pursue my negligence claim and provided very clear advice which proved invaluable to my experience and the positive outcome achieved.”
