Family Law Professional Negligence

“They are first rate. They are great to deal with.”

Chambers & Partners 2021

QEB’s expertise in professional liability covers the full range of claims against family law professionals.

Given their wide range of experience in the family law field, senior QEB barristers are often instructed to provide advice and representation in professional negligence cases. This is where the negligence is alleged to have occurred in the context of a family law dispute.

The main professional negligence specialist in chambers is Oliver Wise, for whom this type of work is a substantial part of his professional practice. He acts for claimants, solicitors and insurers, and is often briefed to appear in mediations, and in the High Court and County Court.

Oliver was instructed by Beachcrofts as Senior Counsel for the (successful) defendant solicitors in the leading solicitors and barristers matrimonial negligence case of Williams v Thompson Leatherdale and Francis ([2009] 2 FLR 730 (Queen’s Bench Division).

In suitable cases Oliver is prepared to act on a conditional fee basis (no win, no fee).
