Professional Negligence

At Urquharts we are recognised experts at offering advice and legal support in professional negligence claims. If you have been unlucky enough to be let down by a professional, who has failed to meet the necessary standards, then we can help. Our personal negligence services include:

An assessment of the merits of your case 

Providing you with advice on your rights 

Helping you to pursue legal action 

Providing specialist advice in claims against solicitors 

Everyone has a right to expect excellent service from professionals, such as accountants, doctors, surveyors, financial advisors, solicitors, architects, and engineers. All of these owe a duty of care to their clients, so if you feel you may have a claim, get in touch.

Claims Against Solicitors

It can sometimes be difficult to find a legal team who will help you make a claim against a solicitor.

We can help: Our Court Department partner is one of a very small number of specialists in this area of the law.  We were appointed in 2004 to the Pursuer’s Panel – a panel that the Law Society of Scotland set up specifically to help members of the public with claims against solicitors.
