Individuals and businesses are increasingly reliant on guidance from professional specialist advisors. Receiving the incorrect, overly positive or wrong advice from a professional whether it be an accountant, solicitor, barrister, surveyor or other type of professional, can have serious consequences for a business and individuals.
When things go well professional advice goes unquestioned. But when things go wrong advice can be seen as a possible contributory factor in breaches, frauds, problems and failures as businesses seek to navigate a tsunami of safety, risk, regulation and compliance hurdles.
