Liquidation Of Law Firm Causes £200,000 Negligence Claim

1st January 2017 by

Our client instructed a firm of solicitors to deal with a claim in regard to his former employer. He was unfortunately unaware that the firm he instructed was in financial difficulty. Subsequently the firm went into liquidation.  This lead to the solicitor dealing with the case to be negligent towards our client’s case.

Aware of these facts our client decided to contact Robert Johnson and Healys’ Professional Negligence team in order to make a claim against the firm.

The outcome of the case

The team, led by Robert Johnson was able to successfully make a claim for £200,000 against the firm for failure in treating our clients claim with due care and diligence.  Nick Evans, our employment law expert, also took part at the claim.  We acted for the client under a CFA and since the case the firm in question has been dissolved.
