It is not surprising that insurance brokers Marsh have observed an increase in claims notifications against solicitors during the lockdown period. Like all professionals, solicitors and other legal advisers have faced a new set of challenges from working at home.
In complex areas of the law such as property, mistakes can be difficult to unravel and put right. We anticipate that we will receive more enquiries concerning claims against legal professionals as the restrictions continue, and while working from home remains the norm. We will consider acting under CFA (no win no fee) arrangements if we think your claim has good prospects as we know that funding arrangements are difficult for many potential claimants.
