From accountants to solicitors, insurance brokers, architects or surveyors – you trust that when you rely on an expert, that they are providing you with a competent service.

Engaging professionals is an essential part of running a successful business, and often significant business decisions are based on the professional advice obtained. For these reasons, businesses. Therefore, need to place trust in their advisors, allowing them access to sensitive information about the business and a level of sway and influence over the business that would otherwise be unusual for an outside party.

Given the above, the impact of receiving negligent advice from a professional advisor can be hugely detrimental to a business, both financially and, in the longer term, in the effect it can have on the business’ willingness to place trust in professional advisors in the future.



Professional advisors owe a duty of care to their clients to carry out their work with reasonable care and skill. A professional advisor is not expected to be perfect but is expected to act reasonably and in-keeping with that of other members of their profession.

Where a professional has made an error or acted in a way that another reasonable person of that profession would not have, they will likely have acted negligently. This can include advice provided by professionals, in actions they carry out on behalf of a client or in the work that they prepare.
