Our history & purpose

PNC Legal was launched in 2017 by Jonathan Watmough.

As a defendant solicitor, representing many of the UK’s leading professional indemnity insurers, Jonathan became increasingly dismayed at the inexperience and incompetence of too many non-specialist solicitors, who were unwittingly relied on by claimants and uninsured defendants on the other side of his professional negligence claims. For claimants in particular, who had already been let down by one professional adviser, this seemed wholly unjust.

PNC Legal has been established to redress this inequality. It is borne out of a desire to re-balance the scales of justice, by affording corporate entities and private individuals the same strength of expertise and the same high calibre of professional service as the professional indemnity insurers and their policyholders command.

We have experience of resolving claims against a wide range of professionals.
