Professional Negligence | Aberdein Considine Legal

Filling the financial gap when your advisers fall short

Professional Negligence

We have significant experience of pursuing professional negligence claims against a range of professional advisors including, solicitors, surveyors, architects, engineers and accountants.

The clients we have acted for include financial institutions, companies, family businesses and individuals, who have suffered a loss as a result of defective professional advice.

Where appropriate, we regularly deploy our alternative dispute resolution experience and, where necessary, run cases through Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland and at the Court of Session in Edinburgh, all with the aim of achieving the best possible outcome for you.

At each stage of the process we will provide you with clear advice on:

  • Your prospects of success
  • The estimated value of your claim
  • The claim process and timescales
  • The costs involved in pursuing your claim

We are able to adopt a creative approach to funding, are willing to share risk with our clients and work closely with a panel of trusted litigation funders that can provide finance for claims.

These funding solutions relieve the strain on clients’ cash flow and working capital often making claims financially viable where otherwise that would simply not be possible and are particularly well suited to the insolvency market.
