Have you been let down by your Barrister?
Has this resulted in a loss to you? If so, you may have a claim for Professional Negligence.
A claim for professional negligence may also arise if your solicitor failed to give full advice, at the outset, about the costs that would be likely to be incurred in any matter.
Where a solicitor is acting for you under a “no win - no fee” agreement, it is important that he or she ensures that you are properly advised or protected against any liability for expenses such as your Court, barrister’s or expert fees and liability for your opponent’s costs should your claim fail.
Your solicitor should arrange insurance against these risks where possible. We have handled a number of claims against solicitors who have negligently failed to advise or protect their client in respect of these potentially significant costs.
If you have been unfortunate enough to have received negligent advice from a solicitor or barrister you may have the right to make a claim for compensation.
