Solicitors

In our team we have a significant amount of experience over many years in defending claims against solicitors extending back to before the start of the open market in 2000. We have acted in a wide range of claims including in more specialised areas of practice which are now regularly attracting professional negligence claims such as human rights law and immigration & residency applications. We have a large number of cases in evolving areas such as breach of trust, investment schemes, use of client accounts and dishonest assistance. We have been instructed in various multi-million pound and class action claims relating to such topics.

We fully understand and advise on the legal and practical consequences of professional conduct rules and law which apply to solicitors and which affect the proper handling of professional negligence claims. We have advised solicitors on responding to claims under their complaints handling procedures or when complaints are made to the Legal Ombudsman and we give guidance to solicitors when they are asked to assist the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Financial Conduct Authority or Police with investigations which are linked to professional negligence claims.

We understand all the intellectual and practical challenges which arise in claims against solicitors to achieve the best result for them and their insurers.
