Claims Against Solicitors

  • The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a multitude of issues for legal practitioners, not least for those dealing with conveyancing transactions. It is predicted that this will lead to a large increase in claims against solicitors.
  • A recent Court of Appeal decision made it clear that even where a buyer had defrauded the mortgage company, the solicitor was not able to avoid a professional negligence claim.
  • If you have lost a court case, or your claim or defence has collapsed, what can you do? There are circumstances in which we may be able to help.
  • Your solicitor has messed up and you have suffered as a result, but what can you do? Can you still bring your claim and do you have to pay their bill? You should get independent advice from an expert solicitor as quickly as possible.
