Making a Professional Negligence Claim

Whether your claim is against a solicitor, accountant, surveyor or financial advisor, the test to be applied is whether the mistake by the professional is one which no reasonably competent professional should have made in the same circumstances and whether it has caused you any financial loss. We work closely with experts who can often assist with determining whether a professional's mistake was negligent and what losses it has caused.

To see whether you have a professional negligence claim, call us for a free, no obligation discussion. 

The types of claim we commonly deal with are claims against solicitors arising out of conveyancing transaction and poor advice and representation in court proceedings, against accountants for wrong tax advice, surveyors for poor reporting or valuations and financial advisers for bad financial or investment advice. The value of the claims range from a few thousand pounds to several million pounds.


The timeframe for bringing a professional negligence claim is typically six years from the act of negligence. However, this will often depend upon the particular circumstances of the case and so can sometimes be longer. It is sensible to seek advice from a solicitor even if you believe the professional's negligence was more than six years ago, as you still may be able to bring a claim. 

Funding Your Claim 

At Seth Lovis & Co., funding your claim is made simple with a variety of flexible fee arrangements. We will try to find a cost solution that fits your particular needs; this may include acting under a conditional fee (or 'no win/no fee') arrangement.
