Our litigation team advise on negligence claims against a wide range of professionals, including accountants, auditors, insurance brokers, solicitors and IT consultants. We also advise on insurance-related issues including professional indemnity and directors and officers liability insurance.

Our experts understand that negligence has a greater impact then purely financial, and take their time to get know their client and the particulars of the case, ensuring that the best possible advice is given in what is often a very stressful and pressurised situation. The team will help with recovering the cost and expense of poor professional advice and where appropriate, help to maintain the future working relationship.
