Forensic cases

Solicitors’ professional negligence

Appointed as the expert to quantify loss in respect of a professional negligence claim made against former solicitors of the client. The claim concerned two partnerships which owned and let residential and commercial property. We were instructed to quantify losses arising in respect of the client's share of the proceeds arising on dissolution of the partnerships.

Accountants’ professional negligence

Advising a company in relation to a professional negligence claim against two sets of accountants for failing to identify a fraud being perpetrated by the company’s bookkeeper. A total of £1.5 million was extracted from the company over a four year period. We used the information available to assess at what point the accountants should have identified the fraud and quantified the losses that could have been saved had they not been negligent.

Provision of negligent advice by solicitors

Appointed in a class action to comment on the financial status of an insurance company backing a property transaction. The claimants had invested in the insurance company following advice from its solicitors.
