Professional negligence solicitors: Expert legal advice

We all rely on other people to do jobs for us – builders, accountants, surveyors, yes, even solicitors! And when we pay a professional to carry out a job for us, we expect it to be done to a professional standard and completed properly. Most of the time the job is done, we pay the bill and both parties are happy. 

Unfortunately, there are times when the work is not finished properly – or you might uncover problems further down the line. When you’re let down by professionals, there can be serious consequences which you’re left to resolve. So what can you do?

We are here to help

Tees can help you hold professionals to account for the work they've done, and any problems it may have caused. Our team of professional negligence solicitors will assess the prospects of your claim and manage the financial risk of bringing court proceedings. 

When a professional doesn’t do their job properly, many people will try to sort it out themselves. The results of professional negligence can be devestating. We can help you recover damages for any losses you've incurred, and get an explanation of what went wrong.  We're here to help put things back on track and find a solution that works for you.
