Professional negligence

Businesses depend on professionals giving sound advice but sometimes the professionals get it wrong and the consequences can often be costly. 

If you suffer a loss due to the negligence of a professional adviser, you may be entitled to claim damages.  If the professional adviser has failed to adhere to the recognised standards of his or her own profession, s/he may have been negligent.  You may have suffered a financial loss, lost time, or you may have suffered from the loss of an opportunity.
