Professional negligence

Gateley Legal's logo Gateley Tweed's logo

When a professional person fails to do their job to the standards expected, you can be left with a substantial financial loss.

A duty of care is owed by a professional person to their clients – they must perform their job with reasonable care and to a reasonable standard. Where they have failed to do so, and this has caused loss, professional negligence has occurred.

What do we do?

Our expert litigators regularly advise on all aspects of professional negligence cases, whether that advice has been given by a solicitor, accountant, tax adviser, financial adviser, property or construction professional. We’ve also developed a niche practice that specialises in defending and litigating against insolvency practitioners and advising on claims against offshore accountants and auditors. These cases are often high-value, complex and cross-border.

Where are we based and where do we practice? 

Our specialist professional negligence lawyers practice across England & Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Specifically: 

  • The Gateley Legal and Gateley Tweed teams work with clients across England & Wales. 
  • The Gateley Tweed team also advise clients in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from their offices in Belfast.  

Who do we help?

Over the years, we’ve brought and defended claims against a wide variety of professionals. These include solicitors, financial advisers, insurance brokers, accountants and insolvency practitioners.

Gateley has a strong reputation in professional negligence, particularly on construction-related cases.
