Professional Negligence Claims Against a Barrister

The idea of suing a Barrister can be daunting. After all, they are legal experts. Don’t be put off. Barristers are subject to strict codes of conduct which they must follow, so if your Barrister failed to provide services to a proper standard, you may be entitled to compensation.

A Barrister can be negligent either through giving advice (in writing or during a meeting called a “conference”) or whilst representing you at a court hearing. In order to pursue your claim, it must have arisen in the last six years.

Do you have a claim?

Examples of professional negligence on the part of a Barrister could include negligently advising on:

  • The value of your claim
  • A settlement deal
  • The correct Defendant 
  • A limitation date/time limit
  • A case that has no chance of success

There are many other grounds that could entitle you to bring a compensation claim against a Barrister. Our knowledgeable team can help advise you on your individual circumstances and determine the potential strength of your claim. Contact us today to see how we can help.

What Do We Need to Prove?

In order to win your case, we need to establish that: 

  • The barrister owed a duty to you 
  • The standard of care fell below that of a reasonably competent Barrister
  • You have suffered a financial loss as a direct result
