The team at Deans Court offer expertise as advisers and advocates in all areas of Professional Negligence Law.

We are regularly instructed for claimants and defendants to advise and act in a broad range of professional negligence claims, with those against lawyers encompassing both contentious and non contentious underlying disputes.

The nature of this area of expertise means that the optimum result for the parties will be one where settlement is reached on mutually acceptable terms, away from the courts, but team members all have invaluable advocacy experience, and have appeared in a number of reported cases in the field.

In relation to claims against lawyers, we are able to offer knowledge and experience of the relevant underlying area of practice given the knowledge base of our team across several sectors.

Common claims we cover include `(but are not limited to ) those against:

 - Solicitors;

 - Barristers;

 - Accountants;

 - Engineers;

 - Architects;

 - Surveyors.

In all cases, estimates for work are provided when requested, and we aim to provide a prompt and high quality service at competitive prices.

We appreciate that, for the professional person, claims of this character bring specific challenges, a factor which we believe can and should be taken into account in the way cases can be most effectively and properly advanced or defended.
