Professional negligence claims against solicitors

One of the more common forms of professional negligence is solicitor negligence, with clients wanting to sue a solicitor after something goes wrong. In legal matters, a solicitor or barrister can provide poor legal advice that causes you loss or damage. Solicitor negligence cases can involve them missing deadlines, not following your instructions correctly, and making mistakes in legal documents.

If you think you have experienced solicitor negligence then our solicitors can help.
