Practice Areas

Professional Liability

We have a particular expertise and high reputation in relation to claims against professionals, whether for negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty or breach of trust. Jackson & Powell on Professional Negligence, the leading work on the subject, was written by Rupert Jackson and John Powell and has been and will continue to be edited and expanded by current members of chambers. Cases range from multi-million pound claims in a wide variety of commercial contexts to small and fast-track claims by private individuals who feel they have been let down by their professional advisers. Whatever the claim, and whether acting for the claimant or the defendant, we bring to it our experience and understanding of the underlying circumstances and our knowledge and experience of similar cases.

Our work in this area extends to issues of professional indemnity insurance, including disputes as to avoidance or denial of cover and as to the meaning and effect of policy terms.

We have been consistently very highly rated in The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners for our professional negligence work.
