Professional indemnity

Negligence claims are an occupational hazard for most professionals, and the implications can be serious and go far beyond the financial. Our leading professional indemnity solicitors understand that and work with you to minimise the impact of any claim.

Protecting more than just the financial

We understand the impact of negligence claims for businesses and individuals, including stress, the time involved in fighting a claim, and the risk of damage to your relationships and reputation.

Our approach is focused on minimising these impacts. Our lawyers have deep expertise in their specialist areas, which extends beyond a technical application of the law. We see the bigger picture.

We work closely with our clients and their insurers to identify solutions that best protect our clients’ interests. Where this involves settling claims, we move quickly to try to achieve this. Where it means defending clients against allegations, we do so with the extensive resources of a full service firm.

Just as importantly, we also advise clients about risk management and how to avoid claims before they arise.

We work hard to achieve the best solutions in the most cost-effective manner. Our teams are led by senior lawyers, and more routine work is done by paralegals to keep costs low. This means our senior lawyers can focus on really adding value – so that you get good value for money.
