Professional Negligence Solicitors

As specialist professional negligence solicitors, we offer an unparalleled level of legal support, guidance and representation, to those clients in Southampton and southern England who have incurred substantial financial loss as a result of professional negligence and who wish to claim compensation.

Why clients in Southampton instruct us as their professional negligence solicitors

Across the whole of England and Wales, there are very few claimant solicitors who can compete with our level of expertise and depth of knowledge in acting on professional negligence claims. It is perhaps not surprising, therefore, that we hear that clients choose to instruct us because we come highly recommended in our specialist field.

Our claims experience in this niche area of law is extensive and truly sets us apart. Much of our historic experience derives from acting for a wide range of other professionals and their professional indemnity insurers, in the defence of professional negligence claims.  This has equipped us with a unique insight and understanding of the claims process, which in turn has enabled us to devise intelligent solutions for our clients, aimed at achieving a fairer and more efficient outcomes for their claims.

All of our solicitors practice exclusively through Keystone Law, a multi-award-winning top 100 UK law firm. As we explain within our service provision, this has a multitude of benefits for our clients.

Where to meet us in Southampton

In our experience, in-person meetings are very rarely required. This is due in large part to the document-driven nature of our work, but also because of our efficient use of modern technology.  Nevertheless, we do maintain corporate meeting room facilities in key locations throughout the UK, including Southampton. For more information on where to meet us, please see below.

Professional negligence claims upon which we advise

We have experience of resolving professional negligence cases against a wide range of professionals. These include:

The value of the professional negligence claims that we advise upon is just as varied, typically ranging from £50,000 to many millions. Together, and as is evident from our published case examples, this means that both the breadth and depth of our experience is extensive.

In determining how best to resolve your claim, we are able to consider a range of legal options, drawing upon our vast experience and knowledge. In many cases, there is no need for legal proceedings and, with the right approach, a resolution can be achieved at the pre-action protocol stage and using one or more of a range of different mechanisms.

As almost every professional negligence claim is unique in some respect, a strategy that has been implemented successful before will not necessarily deliver success again and it is for this reason that, in striving to deliver the best possible outcome for each claim, we maintain an open-mind, which is neither blinkered by precedent nor arrested by pre-conception.

The types of clients we act for

Although we have acted for clients variously located in 38 of the 48 geographical counties of England, most of our clients are located in southern England, where the density of professional service providers is at its highest.

Clients who typically instruct us include a range of professionals, including other solicitors, barristers, doctors, dentists and liquidators, in addition to:

  • Owner-managed businesses
  • Commercial entities
  • Ultra-high-net-worth individuals
  • High-net-worth individuals
