Being let down in your business dealings by someone you trust is always distressing and can be expensive, especially if the poor service is from a professional (e.g. an accountant, surveyor, lawyer or physician).Where the professional is a member of a professional body that exists to oversee best practice, we can help to ensure that a complaint is dealt with appropriately.
Using solicitors to pursue a negligence claim from the early stages makes good sense. Once a claim is presented to its best advantage, there may well be an opportunity to negotiate a settlement. We always look for alternative methods for resolving disputes before resorting to court proceedings.
