Professional negligence

 We know that when you go to a professional for help the last thing you expect is negligent advice which results in you suffering a loss. However, professionals do make mistakes and the professional negligence lawyers at Slater and Gordon specialise in resolving these mistakes through negotiation, arbitration or mediation.

 If the dispute results in litigation they have the expertise and the resources to follow it all the way through. With particular expertise in dealing with professional negligence cases such as:

  • Solicitors, barristers or any legal professionals who have made mistakes
  • Solicitors who settled a personal injury claim for too little money
  • Poor legal advice that subsequently doesn’t work for you
  • Problems that arise with buying or selling property, in particular poor advice from an estate agent, surveyor or an architect
  • Trusts and estates that have been wrongly managed
  • Incorrectly drafted wills – in conjunction with our colleagues in our contentious probate department
  • Professionals who miss deadlines
  • Accountants, surveyors or any professional who has not advised you properly

 As a member of FUW you are entitled to 15% discount on professional negligence services. To make an enquiry without any obligation call on Freephone 0800 884 0041 or
