Professional negligence and litigation FAQs


We've put these two sections together because of the crossover that professional negligence, if not successfully mediated, will most likely end up in litigation.

Professional negligence is a situation in which a member of a professional body, such as an accountant, an estate agent or even a solicitor, has failed to serve their client correctly, and as a result that client has suffered a loss.

Litigation is the action of trying to claim back what is owed, and usually takes place in a court. However, most judges want to see evidence of conflict resolution beforehand to prevent court time. This is where alternative dispute resolution comes in.

If you need an ADR professional, or this hasn't worked and you need a solicitor to litigate, call us on 0800 1777 162.
