Our legal experts will assess the losses you have suffered as a result of a breach of duty and work to get a resolution as soon as possible. In the first instance we will to consider the contractual arrangement between you and your professional adviser. We will also need to establish what it is that your professional adviser failed to do, why the advice or service provided was below an acceptable standard and whether you have suffered any financial loss.
The first step in the process is for the parties to comply with the pre-action protocol for professional negligence cases. Under the protocol, a detailed letter of claim should be sent to the professional adviser or their insurers. This letter of claim will then need to be responded to within a set period of time. In the letter of reply, the allegations made against the professional adviser should either be admitted, partly admitted or denied.
If settlement is not achieved by the parties during the course of the pre-action protocol process, court proceedings may need to be commenced.
