Professional Negligence

Professionals are often instructed to advise in relation to a wide range of matters.  On occasions, the professional may fail to exercise the standard of care and skill required and their advice may be wrong.  This can have serious consequences for businesses and individuals, causing them to suffer financial losses.  We are experienced in dealing with the legal costs in complex professional negligence claims in the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court and County Courts.

As experts in legal costs, we provide a full spectrum of legal costs services in high value and complex claims brought on behalf of businesses and individuals against professionals for negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation.


We deal with the legal costs of claims against a variety of professionals, including legal professionals, accountants and tax advisers, surveyors and valuers, directors, construction professionals, insurers and brokers, and financial advisers.


We have expertise in both the costs management process and detailed assessment procedure. We prepare costs budgets that accurately reflect the important interaction between case and costs management in professional negligence claims, including the flexibility that is often required by the parties in the approach to expert evidence. We are experienced in preparing bills and statements of costs of all sizes, as well as the ensuing procedure for the assessment of costs. We also provide our clients with pragmatic advice and strategic recommendations in relation to complex costs issues.
