Barristers are bound by the rules of their profession to conduct a case with proper skill and care. You rely on barristers to represent you when your property, your rights, or your liberty is at stake. If a barrister has been negligent, we can help you secure compensation for any losses you have incurred.

A barrister can be negligent in a number of different ways:

  • Providing a negligent opinion on a point of law
  • Negligent representation in court or mediation
  • Incorrectly drafting court documents
