If you have been the victim of poor or negligent advice received from a Certified or Chartered accountant and have suffered loss as a result, you may be able to compensation.
We are a firm of compensation lawyers who specialise in claims against professionals who wrongly advise their clients.
If you have suffered loss or damage as a result of the negligent advice provided by a accountant – please make an enquiry with us today.
Because of the nature of these cases and the complexities involved, we do not deal with enquiries via our usual helpline. Please submit your case to us in writing providing as much detail as you deem necessary. We will then contact you to discuss the case further. This ensures that you receive the best advice possible and do not waste time by repeating key issues.
The Accountancy profession is well regulated with most professionals falling under one of two bodies:
Both bodies have well controlled and structured complaints procedures which on the ACCA website are as follows:
“Members of ACCA are required to observe proper standards of professional conduct and specifically to refrain from what is described as ‘misconduct’. Misconduct includes, but is not confined to, any act or default likely to bring discredit to themselves, ACCA or the accountancy profession. ACCA will take disciplinary action against its members, firms and registered students where there is evidence of professional misconduct. In addition, certain non-members (such as partners in mixed practices) expressly agree to be bound by and be subject to ACCA disciplinary regime and consequently may also be disciplined.”
We can help you pursue compensation against an accountant if you feel you have been wrongly advised and have suffered a loss.
We have a team of dedicated professional negligence solicitors who can advise you on your prospects of taking legal action against the party or parties who provided the poor advice.
We cannot help with general complaints about poor service or poor professional attitudes or procedures. We deal with financial loss claims and in order to pursue such a claim you must be able to demonstrate an actual loss has been or is likely to be sustained.
We also cannot help in cases where inevitable tax payments are being considered as a loss. You must be able to show that an actual loss has occurred through the professional’s negligence.
