Professional Negligence

For most clients deciding whether or not to bring a claim against one of their professional advisors, whether it be their lawyer, accountant, architect, engineer or medical professional can be a tough decision. Such decisions require an understanding as to whether or not your trusted advisor has failed to meet the applicable standard of care, has a conflict of interest, has breached a fiduciary or other duty owed to you, failed to warn you of things that you needed to know in making choices before any problem occurred or has simply breached their contract with you entitling you to a remedy. They also require a practical assessment of the strength of your case, the approaches available for resolution, and the advantages and potential pitfalls associated with going forward.

Our lawyers have practices which touch on a wide variety of inter-related practice and subject areas and we believe that helps us to see your matter and potential claim in context.
