As individuals and business customers we entrust our accountants with a great deal of responsibility and rely on their specialist expertise and professionalism to both protect and advance our financial interests. Healys are experts in dealing professional negligence claims against accountants, so contact us today.
As such, when they fail to meet basic standards, the consequences can be critical and the losses so great that it is necessary to prove an accountant negligence claim.
We have been working with people like you for over 30 years and we understand that sometimes an apology is not enough. At Healys we are here to help you recover any losses (financial or otherwise) you have suffered and get the answers you deserve.
Our team has a wealth of experience in professional negligence claims against accountants and we have developed relations with leading chambers in the industry. We are recognised in the field by a leading industry directory, the legal 500. We are also members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association.
Although the British legal system has high thresholds for proving accountant negligence, the guidance of a suitably qualified, experienced and accredited professional negligence solicitor can help turn allegations into incontrovertible evidence. If you feel your accountant has failed in their duty of care toward you and your accounting necessities, talk to Healys today, to see if you have the basis of a claim.
There are many circumstances where it may be appropriate to pursue a claim against your accountant.
Fundamentally though, the question will be of whether you, as a client, have received poor advice or audit from an accountant who owed you a duty of care that covers the error and whether you have, as a consequence, incurred financial loss.
Often it is possible to register a complaint about an accountant with a senior partner of the firm – sometimes it may even be possible to obtain redress at this stage.
Additionally, there are various regulatory bodies which provide complaints procedures to dissatisfied clients.
