The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
9 Gough Chambers’s team of professional negligence barristers offers a deep well of experience, knowledge and practical advice in all claims relating to the potential negligence of professionals including solicitors, accountants, valuers and surveyors. Since we act for injured claimants, for example, or the sued defendant in substantive claims, our team is perfectly placed to advise and represent both clients who consider they have been let down by their professional advisers or those on the receiving end of such a complaint.
The team’s commercial nous and experience in other practice areas enables us to see the wood for the trees and, perhaps most importantly, communicate this in clear terms to the lay and professional client. We are first and foremost advocates, whether this is client or judge facing advocacy.
Given that the valuation of professional negligence claims is often far from straightforward and depends upon an appreciation of the judicial approach to a claim, our professional negligence team can pride itself on its members’ wealth of court-based experience – keeping our fingers firmly on the pulse of judicial attitudes and decision making.
Our experience and knowledge of likely outcomes remains invaluable in litigation involving professional negligence disputes – it enables us to advise on how to achieve the best outcome for our clients outside the courtroom.
