Professional Negligence - Commercial

If you have received inadequate or careless advice from a qualified professional, which led to serious consequences such as a financial loss, you could have a claim against that professional for professional negligence.

This is a complex and specialised area of law which requires specific litigation experience and expertise as it involves difficult and technical issues of fact and law. It is important to recognise the difference between a professional negligence claim and a complaint about the service provided by the professional.  If the actions of the professional have led to a financial loss, then this would be a claim for professional negligence.  However, if a client has just received poor service but has not actually suffered a financial loss as a result of that poor service, then this would be a complaint.

Our team is experienced in quickly identifying and addressing the issues within each case and advising as to the best strategic approach. We provide clear and concise advice and assistance for both companies and individuals with regards to claims involving:
