Professional Negligence

If you have suffered financial losses or damage as a result of mistakes made by a professional, such as an accountant, solicitor, architect, or surveyor, we may be able to assist you in recovering compensation.

Our experienced Dispute Resolution teams in Chesterfield, Sheffield and Mansfield can assist you in establishing whether you have a claim for negligence and, if so, ensure that the relevant pre-action protocol is complied with.  We will always consider the most suitable and cost effective way of resolving your claim, which will include methods such as Alternative Dispute Resolution, Our teams are highly experienced in resolving disputes in this way.

In the event that we are unable to resolve your case by negotiation or Alternative Dispute Resolution, we will advise you regarding the merits of Court proceedings and will assist you in seeking the appropriate remedy via the Courts. 

We offer an initial fixed-fee appointment followed up with a detailed advice letter, to assist you in establishing the merits of your case and to provide you with a suggested course of action.
