Professional Negligence Lawyers

We combine our litigation expertise, experience and intellect to handle professional negligence claims. We assess each case on its own merits and devise the strategy with our clients.

The solicitors at Manleys have extensive experience of acting in professional negligence claims against professionals in many different fields including:

  • Accountants and Tax Advisers
  • Solicitors and Barristers
  • Financial Advisers
  • Surveyors
  • Architects
  • Veterinary Surgeons

We combine our litigation expertise, experience and intellect to handle professional negligence claims. We assess each case on its own merits and devise the strategy with our clients.

We can act aggressively or in a more measured manner as appropriate, depending on the relationship our clients have with the professionals in question. We strive to resolve claims using alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation but also where appropriate we have trial experience.

In certain cases we can offer conditional fee arrangements and can assist our clients in obtaining funding for their own fees in a litigation matter and to provide protection against the client’s risk of having to pay their opponent’s costs and their own disbursements should their action be unsuccessful.
