Professional Negligence Solicitors

As specialist professional negligence solicitors, we offer an unparalleled level of legal support, guidance and representation to clients in Nottingham and across the East Midlands, who have incurred substantial financial loss as a result of professional failings and who wish to claim compensation.

Why clients in Nottingham instruct us as their professional negligence solicitors

Professional negligence claims are renowned for being more complicated and more nuanced than many other, more routine, forms of litigation. It is for these reasons that the professionals facing a claim, and their professional indemnity insurers, retain highly experienced solicitors to defend them.

In contrast, however, there are very few solicitors nationally on the claimant side who possess comparable levels of experience in what is a very niche area of law, and fewer still who have experience of acting for both claimants and defendants.

In these circumstances, with high stakes, and a substantial risk of an inequality of arms, it is all the more important to choose a professional negligence solicitor whom you can instruct with confidence.

Here at PNC Legal, our clients instruct us because we specialise exclusively in professional negligence claims and because our unrivalled experience, unique insight and unbridled dedication, all combine to ensure that they receive the very best representation. Clients also instruct us because, in many cases, we have been recommended to them as professional negligence specialists by a trusted adviser and because of the independent acclaim that our solicitors have received as leaders in our field.

All our solicitors practice exclusively through Keystone Law, a multi-award-winning top 100 UK law firm. This has multiple benefits for our clients as we explain in our service provision.

Where to meet us in Nottingham

Our commitment to using the latest technology to deliver cost efficient communication, as well as the document-centric nature of our work, means that ‘in-person’ meetings are rarely needed. However, we maintain meeting facilities in many of the major commercial centres across England, including Nottingham, should such a meeting prove desirable.

Professional negligence claims upon which we advise

The professional services sector has witness substantial growth in the last 20 years and, in an increasingly complex world, delivers essential support to businesses and private individuals. While the standard of service delivered is generally good, the sheer volume of transactions, coupled with the propensity for human error, means that mistakes are inevitable.

Determining whether those mistakes constitute professional negligence, assessing what related losses can be recovered where they do, and securing fair and reasonable compensation for them, lies at the heart of what we do for our clients.

Between them, our solicitors have almost 50 years of experience in resolving professional negligence claims and, often as part of that process, helping to mitigate the serious consequences that come as a direct result of incorrect or bad advice.

Over the years we have acted upon claims against a wide range of professionals. These include:

For examples of notable claims in which our professional negligence solicitors have acted, please see our Experience.

As solicitors who specialise solely in professional negligence claims, we do not act in claims for personal injury or medical negligence. Nevertheless, we do work with other highly experienced solicitors at Keystone Law, who we can call upon for technical advice and support, where errors or omissions in the conduct of those types of claims have given rise to a professional negligence claim.

The types of clients we act for

Clients who typically instruct us to help them secure compensation include:

  • Owner-managed businesses
  • Commercial entities
  • High and ultra high-net-worth individuals
  • A range of professionals, including other solicitors, barristers, doctors and liquidators.
