Professionals make mistakes too!

If you feel that you have suffered as a consequence of inadequate advice given by a qualified professional you may be entitled to make a claim for professional negligence.

Professionals are legally bound to exercise “reasonable skill and care” when dealing with clients and their affairs. Unfortunately on occasions the appropriate standard of care is not met and you will suffer a financial loss.

Sydney Mitchell’s team has extensive experience of recognising and bringing professional negligence claims against:

  • Solicitors
  • Accountants
  • Surveyors
  • Valuers
  • Financial advisors
  • Barristers
  • Architects

Recent examples of successful cases:

  • A claim against a firm of solicitors for failure to advice correctly on a deceleration of trust
  • Various claims against  valuers for an over valuation of commercial and residential property
  • A claim against a  commercial solicitor for incorrectly drafting a share sale agreement
