Commercial Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims

Commercial Solicitors Professional Negligence ClaimsIf you have suffered a loss through negligent legal advice or services from Commercial Solicitors it can be particularly stressful, as most cases will involve a valuable asset or a valuable source of income. It can also be important in many other ways, not least because it is something you have created yourself or built up over many years, having invested more than just your money into its development. When things go wrong it can be very traumatic and stressful and it can seem very difficult and daunting to obtain legal redress for your loss.

Solicitors and other lawyers are relied upon in Commerce and Business, in general advice, in transactions and in litigation. We have experience in advising where a commercial transaction, litigation or advice has led to a Client suffering a loss and in pursuing professional negligence claims against the lawyers where negligence and loss can be established.

Our previous experience in commercial and business matters enables us to analyse assess and advise on all aspects of business and commercial advice and transactions and to pursue solicitors in negligence where they have caused a loss. Negligence in commercial litigation is likely to occur in a similar way as described under Civil Disputes & Litigation Solicitors Negligence Claims. The remaining types of cases are quite varied but include:

Failure to advise correctly on a Company or Business sale or acquisition Failure to advise correctly on a re-structuring or buy-out
Failure to advise correctly on an asset sale or purchase Failing to advise correctly about TUPE Regulations
Failure to advise correctly as to the extent of future liability after a sale Failure to advise correctly on Warranties (general or tax related)
Failure to advise correctly about Tax Failure to advise correctly on Employment matters
Failure to advise correctly on Business ownership and Partnerships Failure to advise correctly on Company ownership
Failure to advise correctly on Planning and Development Failure to advise correctly on Environmental issues
Failure to advise correctly on Sureties and Guarantees including Authorised Guarantee Agreements Failure to advise correctly on Property and Business liability
Failure to advise correctly on assignments of Leases Failure to advise correctly about commercial Leases
Failure to advise correctly on Rent Reviews Failure to advise correctly on Forfeiture
Failure to advise correctly on Break Clauses Failure to advise correctly on or in preparing commercial Contracts
Failure to advise correctly on termination and renewal of Business Tenancies. Failing to advise correctly about the negligence of a previous Solicitor

It is important to use an experienced team when it comes to making any sort of claim against a Solicitor or other legal professional because these cases are often complex and difficult and the Solicitors and Lawyers’ Insurers will use many legal arguments to challenge your claim. This is particularly important when the subject matter of the claim is Commercial legal advice or services. When Commercial legal advice or services go wrong it often can involve difficult areas of law and practice. This gives the Solicitors’ Insurers even more opportunity to argue that not only was there no negligence, but even if there was, he was not under a duty to achieve the outcome which you say was lost by the Solicitor, or that you would have proceeded with the transaction anyway or no substantial loss has been caused.
