Our experience in acting in these disputes means we appreciate that an understanding of the technical background makes a difference to the legal outcome for our clients. We combine an ability to get on top of the facts with an understanding of the key legal principles which govern professional liability and how those principles differ from the other types of technical disputes in which we are involved.
The increasing popularity of the turnkey contracting strategy means that questions of professional liability and the nature of obligations owed by professionals are of importance in disputes which might not traditionally be characterised as professional negligence claims. We have an extensive history in advising clients in these sorts of claims, having acted in some of the key cases in this area.
Allied to our specialism in resolving professional disputes is our experience of advising on issues concerning professional indemnity insurance in particular in relation to questions of coverage and the proper meaning of policy terms. We are regularly instructed by major insurers and their clients in this regard as a result.
