Professional Negligence

We work hard to help your business claim financial compensation for any losses suffered and always aim to settle claims as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Begbies Traynor's specialist forensic accountants are experienced in professional negligence matters related to a number of services, in particular, accounting and audit services, tax planning and compliance, insolvency and corporate finance.

Our expert team handle highly complex cases at both the preliminary and litigation phases and are skilled in analysing the intricacies of key issues and minute details.  

We are frequently asked to investigate professional negligence claims in the professional services sector and the complex nature of many financial cases requires a skillset of diligence, lateral thinking and outstanding investigative ability - in tandem with in-depth accounting and auditing knowledge.

Common examples of professional negligence include:

  • Negligent advice and/or the mis-selling of a product by a financial advisor
  • Incorrect property valuations from a surveyor or a failure to spot defects
  • Missing of certain time limits by a solicitor, which leaves a client liable for fees
  • Failure to perform property searches by a conveyancer or solicitor, which leads to a client overpaying, or purchasing a property without the facts they would reasonably expect

Professional negligence can be experienced by businesses of all sizes. We have experience in helping a wide range of clients make claims against:

  • Accountants
  • Architects
  • Barristers
  • Engineers
  • Financial advisors
  • Insurance brokers
  • Solicitors
  • Surveyors
  • Tax consultants
