Professionals have a duty of care to their clients. When standards fall short of a reasonable level of skill, care or service, negligence may have occurred.
Claims against professionals such as accountants, financial advisors, surveyors and solicitors continue to increase. We have a highly experienced team of professional negligence lawyers who are experienced in claims against all types of professionals.

Funding your professional negligence claim
As professional negligence lawyers, we are flexible and innovative in relation to our approach to funding. This can involve conducting claims under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) where you only pay the disbursements as the claim proceeds, or discounted fee arrangements where a lower fee is charged if the claim is unsuccessful but a larger fee if it succeeds. Details of these arrangements can be provided on request.
Why use Trethowans?
The cases that our professional litigation solicitors deal with can include high value, complex claims, as well as simpler, lower value claims. In each case the objective is to try and settle the claim as quickly as possible, using the professional negligence pre-action protocol and mediation as an alternative to litigation.
A significant number of professional negligence claims do not get to the stage where court proceedings are necessary, meaning that a settlement is achieved within months rather than years, and costs savings are made.
