Solicitors Negligence

Cubism Law is a leading law firm in Central London specialising in solicitors' negligence claims and legal help against negligent solicitors. We act for private individuals, companies, entrepreneurs and banks.

Recommended by The Legal 500 guide, our professional negligence solicitors have over 50 years of combined experience in dealing with claims against solicitors. We will assess the strength of your claim and put in place the right strategy and plan to help you achieve the appropriate level of compensation and damages. 

Professional negligence claims against negligent solicitors cover a wide variety of issues. Claims range from (1) individual clients with claims arising from negligent property transactions or poorly prepared wills or legal advice to (2) banks and corporate clients with multi-billion pound claims in respect of negligent advice provided in respect of corporate transactions and commercial property acquisitions.  

Our specialist solicitors’ negligence team has acted for dozens of Claimants (ranging from private individuals to entrepreneurs, banks and financial institutions) in claims against solicitors. Over the last five years we have achieved net recoveries of more than £10 million for clients in claims against solicitors.

Negligent Solicitor Claims


Solicitors’ negligence is a specialist area and law firms are backed by insurers who instruct specialist firms to defend professional negligence claims. The members of our team have all been partners or senior lawyers at insurance litigation firms prior to joining Cubism Law. This means that you will be advised by partner level specialists who know exactly what to do – the strategy, plan and positioning to adopt - to achieve the best level of compensation and damages for the client.


Claims against a negligent solicitor

Many claims of solicitors’ negligence relate to property transactions; but these are at least matched in number by claims for negligent advice on different areas of the law, and claims for failure to adequately protect the client’s position in commercial litigation or legal proceedings.

Between them, our solicitors’ negligence consultants have acted for individual clients, partnerships and companies in literally hundreds of such claims and offer a breadth and depth of experience which is second to none. 

Can I sue a solicitor?

If you are in the position where you have received negligent advice from a solicitor you may be eligible to make a compensation claim and we will advise you about the best way of obtaining redress, be it negotiation, litigation or a claim to the Compensation Fund.

Compensation claims should normally be made only if you suffer a financial loss because your Solicitor has been negligent. Poor service in itself will not always be enough to mount a valid compensation claim.
