Case Study: Professional Negligence Claim against Leading UK Bank

22nd August 2022 by

Robert Johnson, Partner and Head of Professional Negligence at Healys LLP, successfully represented two claimants in professional negligence and breach of contract claims against a leading UK Bank.

The claims arose out of significant undervaluation and sale of a substantial Georgian mansion in Somerset.  The property had been repossessed by the leading UK bank during the property crash in early 2011-13 but when subsequently sold achieved a sale price of less than half of the valuations obtained by the clients’ independent valuers.

While this claim was dealt with a few years ago, it is likely that similar types of claims will increase as a recession looms, with interest/mortgage rates increasing and asset values falling. Robert has the experience and expertise to help you if you find you are in a similar situation to the circumstances summarised above.

The claimant said:

“We engaged Robert in relation to our professional negligence/breach of contract claim against a renowned bank and valuer.  Robert is a very experienced commercial litigator and [handled] our claim in a very professional and efficient manner.  He always provides us with concise and timely advice at every stage which has allowed us to make informed decisions regarding our claim.  We always feel that we are kept fully informed of all aspects of our claim and Robert is always willing and available to clarify matters over the phone if need be.  We have no hesitation in recommending Robert to anyone who is looking for a solicitor who will conduct their professional negligence or breach of contract dispute in an efficient, professional and effective manner which we are confident will lead to us achieving the best possible result.”
