Claims Against Negligent Solicitors

We specialise in claims against solicitors practising in most areas of law. In particular, we are recognised nationwide as specialists in claims for mistakes made by solicitors in the following areas:

  • Residential conveyancing
  • Commercial leases and lease renewals
  • Rights over land (including rights of way)
  • Will drafting and probate
  • Leasehold extensions and freehold enfranchisement
  • Declarations of trust

Many people still think that one solicitor will not bring a claim against another negligent, or even dishonest, solicitor, and there are still some solicitors who believe that this is exactly as it should be. Our team is fearless in the pursuit of professionals in the wrong. We always give the best possible advice about pursuing a claim.

Our job is to tell you whether you have a good case or not. If so, we will obtain compensation quickly without you having to worry about the legal costs along the way. Our ability to act on a “no win, no fee” basis and our long standing relationships with insurance companies and barristers can remove the risk of paying substantial sums in legal costs.

If you think you have a claim then we may be able to help you. Please contact the professional negligence team or call 0800 3890 385 and we will be happy to discuss your case in further detail.
