Professional Liability

Advising clients on professional liability disputes & insurance claims

Our professional liability team has a long history of successfully defending professional services firms in disputes, working closely alongside our professional indemnity team. These range from smaller disputes where cost-efficiency is a priority, to large scale, complex multi-million pound disputes.  

We are experienced in advising firms on how to navigate high profile and reputationally sensitive claims, and in working with risk and management teams and communications specialists to minimise the fall-out from such disputes.

We have worked with insurers and professional services firms on proposed changes to the insurance arrangements for solicitors and surveyors. We can also assist with insurance and reinsurance arrangements to meet the needs of professional networks under different legal and regulatory regimes.

Our professional practice lawyers can also advise boards and members on a range of management liability issues, bringing to bear our understanding of where the gaps might arise between the various forms of liability cover available to professional services firms.
