If you have suffered a financial loss due to the negligent action of an accountant, contact us at Imperium Law to find out about making a claim.

For legal advice and a review of your claim telephone 0800 633 5730.

Negligence claims against professionals such as accountants are rising in number, the reason for this is twofold. Firstly we now rely more heavily on professional advice and secondly individuals and businesses are more aware of their legal rights and are prepared to seek compensation in cases of poor advice and financial mismanagement.

Claims for accountant negligence generally involve cases of:

  • defective tax advice.
  • share valuations.
  • property transactions.
  • corporate acquisitions.

Breach of duty of care.

Accountants in England are regulated by the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, and guidelines and procedures are in place for accountants to follow.

If your accountant has breached their duty of care, and due to their negligent advice or actions you suffered a financial loss you may have a claim.

Seek legal advice from a specialist professional negligence solicitor.

Cases of professional negligence can be highly complex which is why it is best to seek the advice of a legal firm with prior experience and a proven track record of successfully winning claims.

At Imperium Law we have a team with the experience and knowledge to achieve the best outcome. We are experts in this area law, and understand the complexities involved in negligence cases.

At Imperium Law we can:

  • investigate how the advice you were given resulted in your loss.
  • recommend the best course of action for your claim.

Negligence claim time limits.

You have six years from the date the negligence occurred to make your claim, and to be successful it must be proved that:

a) there has been a loss.
