Professional Negligence Solicitors

As specialist professional negligence solicitors, we offer an unparalleled level of legal support, guidance and representation to clients in Oxford and its surrounding areas who have suffered substantial financial losses as a result of professional negligence and who wish to claim compensation.

Why clients in Oxford instruct us as their professional negligence solicitors

Our depth of knowledge, extensive experience and invaluable insight makes the team at PNC Legal a distinct and prudent choice for claimants in Oxford and surrounding areas wishing to pursue a professional negligence claim.

Between them, our solicitors have accumulated almost 50 years of experience in dealing with professional negligence claims against a wide range of professionals. Further and uniquely, a significant proportion of this experience has been gained while defending claims for many of the UK’s leading professional indemnity insurers and their professional policyholders. While our solicitors now act predominantly for claimants wishing to pursue claims, this historical experience greatly assists us in devising intelligent solutions for our client’s claims, aimed at achieving a more efficient and more equitable result.

So too does the fact that our solicitors continue to accept instructions to represent uninsured defendants, some of whom have also had grounds to bring a related professional negligence claim against a third party.

Critically, this diverse experience and expertise also ensures that our perspective and our advice remain objective and balanced, rather than blinkered or prejudiced.  In turn, this further assists us in delivering better outcomes for our clients.

All our solicitors practice exclusively through Keystone Law, a multi-award-winning and top 100 UK law firm, with a head office located on Chancery Lane in Central London. This provides enormous benefits for our clients, as we explain within our service provision.

Where to meet us in Oxford

We have access to corporate meeting rooms in most of the major commercial cities across England and, of course, in Oxford. However, in our experience, it is relatively rare that an ‘in person’ meeting is necessary. This is because our work is primarily document-based and because our use of modern technology usually provides a more time and cost-effective alternative. Nevertheless, appropriate facilities are always available as an option should the need for a physical meeting arise.

Professional negligence claims upon which we advise

We act in claims against a wide range of professionals, including:

As true specialists in our field we do not dilute our practice, as other solicitors do, by undertaking professional negligence claims alongside general litigation, dispute resolution, personal injury or medical negligence work. However, we are well-connected with other highly commended solicitors, who are able to provide technical insight and expert advice in many other specialist areas of law, either on an independent basis or collaboratively and in support of a professional negligence claim.

The types of clients we act for

The majority of our clients ask us to act on their behalf in order to pursue a professional negligence claim, seeking compensation for a financial loss or liability they have sustained. These include:

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