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.

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

Client Case study of professional negligence by a barrister

Client anticipated she would receive 50% of ex-husband pension but only received 33%

Our client instructed a barrister (through her family solicitors) to represent her at a hearing. Settlement was achieved at the hearing and an agreement signed to reflect this.

It was previously anticipated that the client would receive 50% of her ex-husband’s pension. However, the terms of the settlement stated that she would receive just 33%. After various negotiations, a settlement was agreed.

Outcome: The client received over £150,000 damages and over £60,000 costs.
