Professional Negligence

This includes negligence claims against completing solicitors connected with breach of retainer, breach of duty or breach of trust.

We have also successfully recovered significant damages from solicitors’ insurers, and pursued claims against the Solicitor’s Compensation Fund.

We also bring cases against other professionals, including surveyors, architects and mortgage brokers.

Where possible we always try to solve disputes through mediation, which has proved both hugely successful and cost-effective.


The ‘very able’ department at Hamlins LLP acts for claimants in professional negligence cases against law firms, accountants, financial advisers, trustees, construction consultants, surveyors and civil engineers.
