Our highly qualified team of professional negligence solicitors specialises in bringing claims against professionals. We are members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association, so we have extensive experience and expertise.
A settlement might seem distant when you first talk to us, but our team will guide you through the process and help you achieve the best possible outcome.
We start by listening to your story and understanding what went wrong. If you have a legitimate claim we will look at relevant papers, establish the full context and negotiate robustly, but tactfully on your behalf.
In certain circumstances, we will refer you to a barrister for specialist help. We have excellent relationships with the top barristers in professional negligence, so you will be in the hands of a top legal professional.
In most cases, we are able to settle claims before they reach the courts. However, if things go further we will present your claim in a compelling and persuasive manner.
Our Guide to Professional Negligence Claims is intended to be a brief overview of some of the important considerations and procedures when embarking upon a professional negligence claim.
Our lawyers are based in Tunbridge Wells and Kings Hill, Kent and in Cannon Street, London. Whilst many of our clients are from the South East (including Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London), we act for clients based throughout England and Wales and from abroad. We are always willing to meet with our clients at any of our offices, at their home or their place of work. We also meet with clients via online communication channels, such as SKYPE or video conferencing. Wherever our clients are based, we ensure we communicate with them in a way that suits their needs.
To make a claim against a professional, please call us for a free, no obligation discussion. If you proceed we arrange appropriate payment terms – in suitable cases we can offer fixed fees, deferred payments or ‘no win, no fee’ terms.
