Professional Negligence Solicitors

Specialist professional negligence team

Our team are specialists in acting for those pursuing a claim for professional negligence. We have acted in some of the most complex and high value claims to come before the Court of Session in recent years, representing our clients in claims against solicitors, accountants, financial advisers, insurance brokers, surveyors and bankers.

Our clients include financial institutions, funds, businesses of all sizes and private individuals.

We recognise the sensitivities which can be associated with making claims against former trusted advisers and have a strong track record of successfully resolving professional negligence claims by mediation.

Where court proceedings are required we are able to call upon some of the country’s most accomplished litigators to represent our clients throughout Scotland, within the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session.

The partner-led team has strength in-depth, and the team’s capability is enhanced by the expertise of Professor Robert Rennie, Scotland’s leading expert on professional negligence in conveyancing and property transactions. Robert is regularly instructed by litigants as an expert witness in professional negligence actions.

Professor Robert Rennie is regarded as Scotland’s leading expert on solicitors' negligence, having literally written the book on the subject.
