Solicitor Professional Negligence

You have the right to expect a reasonable quality of service if you go to a solicitor for help. In most cases, solicitors and their clients enjoy good working relationships and get to a satisfactory result. But when a solicitor makes a mistake, the knock-on effects can be serious and expensive, so you may have a claim for professional negligence.

Examples of our work

Settlement negotiated with solicitors who missed the deadline

The client instructed solicitors to extend a business lease. They failed to comply with the deadline for service of the counter-notice. As a result, the client entered into a lease which had no protection under the 1954 Act. Although we had to issue proceedings a settlement was negotiated.

Damages: over £50,000 plus legal costs

Liability admitted to client by previous solicitors

Our client purchased a property with the right to extend the lease assigned to him. The client’s solicitors failed to protect or advance the right to extend the lease and the original notice was deemed withdrawn. We were instructed to start the process again and we wrote a letter of claim to the conveyancing solicitors. Liability was admitted and a sum for compensation (over £10,000) was paid to the client, with relatively minimal costs by us and without the need to even issue proceedings.

Damages: Over £10,000
