Professional Negligence

A successful claim for professional negligence was brought against a company’s solicitor who had failed to apply for a new lease in connection with the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. As a result, our client was forced to leave its shop premises and move to a new location. Compensation was successfully claimed from the client’s former solicitor for loss of turnover, increased rent and period of the new lease, removal costs and other associated costs in excess of £30,000.
