Professional negligence cases have increased over the last 10 years. Chambers offers expertise in advising under both the contract of retainer and in negligence.

The causes of action are distinct and offer different opportunities and challenges. Chambers can support litigation professionals in the preparation of the Letter of Claim, calculation of loss and mitigation. We can provide up to date guidance on the CPR, limitation and standstill as well as advocacy for an application or court hearing or assistance through mediation.

Chambers edits the Commercial Litigation Journal published by Legalease and provides training to solicitors in this field. Our advice is based upon recent cases and contemporary know how. We act for claimants and defendants.

We accept instructions from businesses and individuals through the direct access scheme. You no longer require a solicitor and we offer a first free telecon to our direct access clients. We suggest this is done sooner than later as the time limit for making a claim can expire.

We can offer written opinions, meetings and telephone conferences. Our meeting rooms are located in London, Manchester and Bristol. If you would prefer, we can arrange a conference at your offices.

Recent work includes:

  • Opinion on financial mis-selling claim by an independent financial adviser
  • Successful settlement of a solicitor’s negligence claim
  • Drafting a letter of claim and settlement of a construction professional’s negligence
