We have considerable experience in the resolution of claims against professionals for both claimants and professionals who have been the subject of a claim.
Clients naturally wish to preserve confidentiality and to see matters resolved without interruption to business, and where possible, to retain the professional relationship.
We are well used to handling professional negligence claims against accountants, solicitors, architects and surveyors, who all have a strong interest in maintaining their professional reputation and their clientele.
Experience and resolution
We advise on a number of claims of high value and technical difficulty.
We act for Royal and Sun Alliance and the lead insurers under the Law Society of Scotland Master Policy for Professional Indemnity Insurance, as well as for other insurers and claimants in cases involving a wide range of professions.

Client care and support during every stage of the process
Our team of professional negligence solicitors support businesses across Scotland and has strong litigation and mediation skills and is able to call on the firm’s in-house Solicitor Advocates, Alastair Milne, Elaine Motion, Fiona Muirs and Robert Holland who who can represent you in the Higher courts if necessary saving you additional fees.
We recently settled a claim on behalf of an Insured client arising out of a claim by the widow of the deceased who sustained severe injuries as a result of a road traffic accident, but whose subsequent cause of death was hypoxic brain damage sustained as a result of cardiac arrest in hospital and was not due to the injuries sustained in the road traffic accident.
After full investigation of complex issues a successful settlement was obtained for the Insured client.
