Professional Negligence

Spread the love

At some point we all need to rely on professionals be they lawyers, surveyors, or financial advisers. Unfortunately though, sometimes things can go wrong.

Blacks Solicitors’ Professional Negligence team provide a full range of dispute resolution services in relation to claims against professionals which includes negotiation, mediation, adjudication, expert determination, arbitration, and litigation in the Technology and Construction Court.

Has a professional adviser let you down, and caused you losses?

The majority of the time professional advisers provide a proper service in accordance with their instructions and professional duties, but things can go wrong.

Professional negligence is a breach of the duty of care, which professionals owe to their clients, that causes a loss, and most professionals carry insurance against which claims can be made.

Our team has extensive experience in dealing with claims against solicitors, architects, surveyors, barristers, accountants, mortgage brokers, and other advisers giving advice in a professional capacity.

Regulatory Proceedings against Solicitors, Doctors and Police Officers

Individuals can be called to account before their professional body for actions they have performed in the course of their practice.

We have extensive experience in dealing with regulatory proceedings for and against individuals, at all levels, before the Solicitors Regulation Authority, General Medical Council and Police Misconduct Panel/Police Appeals Tribunal.

Construction Disputes

We deal with all types of disputes arising out of construction and building contracts, against surveyors, architects, and engineers, including:

  • Breaches of contract
  • Claims relating to defective workmanship

Our team are also experienced in dealing with claims for associated loss and expense caused by delay or disruption to a building project, final account disputes, use of withholding notices, and claims relating to the cost of carrying out additional works or variations under a contract.
