Carl Troman named Professional Negligence Junior of the Year 2022

Professional negligence claims lie at the heart of Carl Troman’s practice.   He acts for and against a wide range of professionals including lawyers, accountants, insurance brokers, construction professionals and financial advisers.   Carl regularly appears in the Court of Appeal and works on legally, factually and procedurally complex multi-million pound disputes.   Often those cases have an insurance law dimension, which is another of Carl’s specialisms. To read more about Carl Troman’s professional negligence practice please see his website profile.

Congratulations to Patrick Lawrence KC and Michael Bowmer who were also nominated for the Professional Negligence Silk and Junior of the Year awards.

Professional Negligence Barristers at 4 New Square Chambers

Our barristers appear in many of the most prominent and high value professional liability cases. Jackson & Powell on Professional Liability, the leading practitioner book on this area of law, continues to be edited in house.

Cases range from multi-million pound claims in a wide variety of commercial contexts to claims by private individuals who feel they have been let down by their professional advisers. We act in cases involving the full range of professions and are experienced in cases with an international element.

Whatever the claim, whatever the profession and whether acting for the claimant or the defendant, we bring to it both an understanding of the underlying circumstances 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.

‘4 New Square offers unparalleled capabilities in the area of professional negligence, regularly attracting key instructions for and against professionals in the legal, financial and insurance sectors. The set excels in any case involving advice on financial planning, investments, tax liability, property or the conduct of litigation. It is notable for its deft handling of the high-value and the legally complex, including a number of recent cases on limitation, or causation, or successor practices in claims against solicitors. The barristers have continued to appear in fora up to and including the Supreme Court. This year they have appeared in leading cases such as Aurium Real Estate London Ultra Prime v Mishcon de Reya.’ – Chambers & Partners UK Bar Guide 2023: Professional Negligence
