Professional Liability Profile

Gavin has particular experience of advising in respect of claims against solicitors (most especially in the property, trusts and probate fields, but also generally). He brings his knowledge of the law in those areas into the consideration of potential failings by lawyers, including having regard to risks of conflict and breaches of fiduciary duty. He has recently both advised and pleaded a case against a conveyancing solicitor who had represented a group of purchasers of plots notwithstanding the apparent risk of conflict having regard to competing interests between themselves as to the access and use of those plots. The case secured a favourable settlement for the claimant.
