Making a Barrister Negligence Claim

Professional negligence claims against barristers require specialist knowledge of the barrister's role in our legal system.

Our lawyers are experienced in bringing successful claims against barristers and we are seeing an increase in this type of claim. This may be due to the blurring of the traditional distinction between barristers and solicitors. Direct Access (the scheme by which barristers can be instructed by members of the public directly, bypassing the solicitor) is another factor and we have recently recovered compensation for clients who were let down by a barrister instructed by them under this scheme.

Barrister negligence claims can arise in a number of different ways, including:

  • when a barrister gives incorrect legal advice in a written document
  • when a barrister gives incorrect legal advice in a case conference
  • when a barrister makes a legal error in court
  • when a barrister makes an error drafting a legal document
  • when a barrister misses a key deadline¬†

We deal with barrister negligence claims on a No Win, No Fee basis.
