What is a professional negligence claim against a solicitor?

We can advise you on whether you have a good claim against your negligent solicitor. Some examples of where we may be able to bring a claim against your solicitor are:

  • Missed the limitation date or court deadline
  • Caused your claim to be struck out by the court for failing to comply with court orders
  • Made a mistake when purchasing your home or property
  • Negligently settling a case for too low an amount or not quickly enough
  • Failed to file a cost budget depriving you of the right to recover costs from your opponent
  • Failed to properly advise you on settlement offers
  • Wrongfully terminating a CFA
  •  Not advising properly on financial disclosure or pension rights in a divorce case
  • We work closely with leading barristers in solicitors’ negligence and aim to settle cases as quickly as possible to avoid expensive and long drawn out litigation.

Claims are normally to be made within 6 years of the solicitor’s negligence. Strict time limits apply and therefore urgent advice should be taken to avoid missing limitation deadlines in order to bring a solicitors’ negligence claim.


Will my claim be successful?

In order to bring a successful negligence claim against a solicitor, a claimant i.e. the person bringing the claim, must demonstrate to the court that the professional in question owed them a duty of care which is normally established by them being a client in the first place, secondly that professional breached his duty of care, thirdly that the professional by either doing something or failing to do something (the latter often referred to as an omission), caused the claimant a loss. The loss is the fourth element that the claimant must prove.

Claims are normally to be made within 6 years of the solicitor’s negligence. Strict time limits apply and therefore urgent advice should be taken to avoid missing limitation deadlines in order to bring a solicitors’ negligence claim.
