What distinguishes our expertise in Professional Liability is our: “strength in depth across the professional negligence spectrum” (Chambers and Partners).
Our market-leading and substantial team are frequently instructed to act in claims for or against solicitors, barristers, engineers, architects, surveyors, project managers, accountants, auditors, actuaries, financial advisers and insurance brokers. We are also regularly retained in D&O matters. Both Legal 500 and Chambers UK Bar recognise us as “demonstrating strength and depth across professional negligence spectrum”, and “very commercial, very efficient and very smart” (Chambers UK). Our ranked members are particularly regarded for their technical expertise. We are a “great choice for construction–related professional negligence” (Legal 500).
Members act for both domestic and international individuals, businesses and insurers. Several members of the team have substantial relevant in-house experience from having worked at or been seconded to insurers, large solicitors’ firms, claims handlers and brokers.
As well as advising on the substantive dispute, members also deal with associated issues such as coverage and other professional indemnity insurance issues, as well as regulatory disputes.
Members of chambers are contributing authors to Construction All Risks Insurance, Construction Professional Indemnity Insurance (both Sweet & Maxwell), Insurance Broking Practice and the Law ((Informa) and Risk and Negligence in Property Transactions (Law Society).
