Professional Negligence

What our barristers do

We act in a wide range of professional negligence claims and associated regulatory issues, including in relation to accountants and auditors, construction professionals, financial practitioners, insurance brokers, solicitors, barristers and surveyors.

Our work concerning accountants and auditors includes failure to detect corporate/management fraud, overvaluation of assets, understatement of liabilities and breaches of corporate governance.

We advise and act for both claimants and defendants in disputes involving alleged professional negligence by architects, engineers, project managers, designers and surveyors in the construction, engineering, information technology, mining and energy sectors.

We also advise and represent clients in related professional indemnity insurance issues and regulatory and disciplinary proceedings. This includes advising clients seeking redress from the Financial Conduct Authority due to alleged deficient advice from their financial advisers on investments, pensions, tax and other financial matters.
