Legal Professionals


Our members are frequently instructed in professional negligence claims involving solicitors, barristers and other legal professionals, in cases concerning contentious and non-contentious business.

These include cases raising novel points or exploring the boundaries of the law, such as the illegality defence (Stoffel v Grondona in the Supreme Court), or the scope of a solicitors’ duty when operating a legal advice helpline (Miller v Irwin Mitchell LLP).

We are also regularly instructed in cases alleging under-settlement or misconduct of litigation, particularly in cases from Chambers’ other core areas of practice.
