The last thing you expect when you hire a professional is for them to be negligent. Unfortunately some professionals do make mistakes, miss deadlines and misadvise. Our professional negligence lawyers specialise in resolving these mistakes through negotiation, arbitration or mediation.

  • Accountants
  • Architects
  • Barristers
  • Engineers
  • Financial advisors
  • Insurance brokers
  • Solicitors

Why Slater and Gordon?

Our team is respected for and experienced in advising on disputes involving the provision of professional services - whether that is the instruction of a solicitor in the handling of a divorce or an accountant preparing companies accounts.

We act on behalf of all types of people for both organisations and individuals, and pride ourselves on delivering clear and commercially-focussed advice in this complex area of law requiring specific litigation experience or expertise.

We understand the most important thing for clients is the early resolution of disputes on acceptable financial terms and with that in mind, although we have considerable trial experience, we support all forms of alternative dispute resolution and successfully resolve claims through mediation on a regular basis.

That said if your professional negligence dispute turns to litigation we have the expertise and the resources to follow it all the way through in a cost conscious way

Our recent cases include:

  • Acting for an individual in a claim against former solicitors for failure to advise fully on the costs, consequences and merits of a linked litigation case.
  • Acting for two individuals in pursuing a claim against a financial advisor after entering into Enterprise Investment Schemes.
  • Acting for an individual in a claim against former solicitors for negligent advice on the financial implications of their divorce settlement.
