Professional Negligence Solicitors

Righting wrongs…


When we choose a professional to undertake work on our behalf, we are trusting that they are up to the task at hand. However, there are times when things don’t quite go to plan. When mistakes are made, whether intentionally or inadvertently, the consequences can be significant and the stress and strain of such mistakes can impact every aspect of your life.

From bad legal advice to financial advice that was mis-sold or inadequately explained, if you find yourself dealing with the results of poor professional care, then there are steps you can take to rectify the situation.

While our aim is to win compensation on your behalf, we understand that pursuing a professional negligence case is often about more than the compensation you are entitled to. Many clients bring cases against legal, financial, property or other professionals for a sense of justice and to prevent such issues affecting others in the future.

Our experienced team of professional negligence solicitors are experts in handling professional negligence claims and many of them are undertaken on a no win, no fee basis. Visit our specialist professional negligence website by clicking here.

Along with the expertise and legal know-how you need to successfully pursue your case, here at Smith Partnership you will also find a warm and friendly welcome, along with a straight-talking and fuss-free approach to your case. The success of our Professional Negligence team has seen it feature as part of the Legal 500, an independent guide to law firms in the UK, which describes the team as:

"(...) [handling] a broad spectrum of professional negligence claims, chief among which claims against architects, surveyors and builders, lawyers, financial service professionals and trade unions. ‘Highly experienced and competent’ practice head and mediator Alison Neate is praised for ‘her mastery of detail’; she recently led for the claimants in a group action against a firm of financial advisers regarding the investment of pension monies and other personal savings into a scam company. The group’s online platform ClaimsAgainst generates a significant portion of the caseload, including a recent instruction for a claim against accountants in relation to the preparation of incorrect company accounts.”

We also hold the Law Society’s LEXCEL mark thanks to our commitment to excellent customer care.
