Over recent years, there has been an increasing number of claims which have been pursued against legal professionals such as solicitors; however, claims against barristers, legal executives and licensed conveyancers are also on the increase.
The professional legal services sector is a highly skilled and regulated profession. Solicitors are subject to a strict code of conduct and owe a duty of care at all times to act in the best interests of their clients and not to mislead the courts.
On occasions, things do and can go wrong. When things do go wrong you may be entitled to pursue a claim for professional negligence and to recover damages and other remedies. Solicitors owe their clients a duty of care. If that duty is breached, it can cause significant financial loss or lost opportunity, it can also cause stress and worry when attempting to determine what to do next.
