Professional Negligence Solicitors

When you instruct a professional to carry out a task, you have a reasonable expectation that they owed you a duty of care to carry out their instructions in a way that does not cause you or your business harm.

Should a professional breach their duty of care, you may be able to bring a professional negligence claim in contract or tort against them. There may be advantages as to which type of claim you should bring, which is where an expert professional negligence solicitor can help.
