Professional Negligence

Specialist expertise in professional negligence claims in Wales and England

We can help you with any claim you may have against your professional advisors. Don’t just take our word for it – we are one of only a few law firms recommended in Wales by both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners independent guides to the legal profession as having a recognised expertise in claims for professional negligence.

Their assessment from the beginning was spot-on” – Chambers and Partners Guide

What types of professional negligence work do we conduct?

Berry Smith acts exclusively for claimants across the whole of England and Wales and provide what the Legal 500 described as “Small firm service and costs but with big firm expertise”.  We have successfully helped individuals and businesses, ranging in size from Multi National Insurance companies to sole traders, to bring claims against all types of professionals. 

Whilst we have a nationally recognised expertise in property related professional negligence claims, we have also been able to help our clients in claims against Solicitors, Barristers, Accountants, Construction Professionals (including Architects and Engineers), Surveyors, Financial Advisors and Insurance Brokers.   

What approach do we adopt to professional negligence work?

We are able to help you through court proceedings and all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, but what we believe makes us stand out from our competitors is not merely our legal expertise, but providing, what the Legal 500 has described as, “knowledgeable and commercial advice” and Chambers and Partners as “good, creative and technical advice”. 

There are time limits by which any claim should be made and so, if you think that you may have a claim for professional negligence, you should not delay in seeking legal advice. If you would like us to consider your claim, without any obligation, please contact us to discuss your case.

What clients say about Iwan

Where other solicitors have taken things at face value, Iwan took the time to fully understand the case, thought outside the box, and came up with a plan of attack. He kept us fully informed at all times. 

He was not afraid to be honest, and told us when things were not likely to go our way, instead of the usual ‘tell them what they want to hear’.

We only wish Iwan was on our team from the beginning of this case, instead of only meeting him when we had to issue proceedings against our own solicitor!
