Can I Sue a Solicitor?

Solicitors make mistake and are accountable for their actions. However, we often have found clients feeling afraid to challenge or sue solicitors.

In our many years of experience handling professional negligence, we have helped clients to overcome the obstacles that prevent them from suing a solicitor, including:

  • Feeling intimidated and fearing they will be unsuccessful against a legal professional
  • Worrying about damaging a relationship with the solicitor by challenging them
  • Feeling as though they have no legal recourse

We are very knowledgeable when it comes to obtaining justice against solicitors, legal firms and barristers. Most of the time the client will not face the solicitor so you can rest assured that it is unlikely you will ever have to confront him or her.

How to Sue a Solicitor in the London Area

First, to sue a solicitor you will need to establish what you wish to sue the solicitor for and if you have a case — typical examples would be:

  • Not advising of a right of way over a property purchase
  • Ignoring part of a property is not included in a sale
  • Searches were not completed or failed to notice problems
  • Failure to challenge compensation resulting in an unsatisfactory amount awarded
  • Missing a time limit or wrongly advising for issuing proceedings
  • Undervaluing a claim or failing to win the correct amount of compensation
  • Poor investigation of medical issues or certificate
  • Poor or insufficient preparation of a case
  • Failing to inform the client of the potential cost of losing
  • Poor or bad advice on an offer of settlement
  • Drafting incorrect wills
  • Poor or inadequate handling of an ancillary relief claim
  • Failing to produce a realistic cost estimate
