3PB Direct

We regularly act for claimants and defendants in claims relating to alleged professional negligence by solicitors, barristers, conveyances, construction professionals, estate agents and valuers.

People may feel that they have been, for example, poorly advised by their surveyor or poorly represented by their barrister. We have expertise in the progression and handling of such claims from the perspective of both the client and the insured professional, which enables us to give clear, focused realistic advice about the issues of scope of duty, limitation, proof of breach of duty, causation and assessment, quantification of damage and settlement negotiations.

We can assist with all stages of such claims from a preliminary consideration of the merits of a proposed claim, drafting pre-action correspondence, drafting court documents, representing clients at mediation or settlement meetings and, if court proceedings are issued, in advising and representing clients at all stages of the litigation from the first preliminary hearing right through to trial and appeal.

3PB also offers barristers with experience of other professional negligence matters. Please see our commercial services pages for further information.
