Accountant negligence

People use accountants for a variety of reasons; including tax advice or setting up a new business. In certain situations, you may be unfortunate enough to have obtained advice which you later find out was not accurate or even true. If this is the case, you may be able to sue your accountant for negligence, especially if it has cost you financially.

If you think that you have received advice which has been detrimental to your situation in a personal or business capacity, our experienced solicitors would be happy to investigate any potential professional negligence claims against your accountants on your behalf.

Our professional negligence team offer a range of funding options including fixed price advice, with 30 minute appointments available for £150 in certain areas. Contact us discuss your situation on 0203 816 9314.
