If you run a business or are self-employed, you will likely rely on the expertise of an accountant for advice and services relating to your finances.

Can I sue my accountant for negligence

Making a negligence claim against a professional like an accountant can be a daunting prospect.

That is why the specialist lawyers from Jones Whyte will support you throughout the whole process.

Our solicitors have helped clients in a number of cases like this, including where accountants have failed to correctly calculate the figures, have encouraged the involvement in tax loophole schemes which HMRC has ruled illegal or have negligently provided advice in relation to a client’s financial affairs, which causes them to lose money.

Where any of these issues have arisen, the team at Jones Whyte can assist with your compensation claim. We have an excellent track record in achieving the maximum financial award available in professional negligence actions.

For a successful claim, we will need to establish the facts of what happened, the duty your accountant owed you, how they breached the duty and the fact that breach of duty caused you financial loss.

We will guide you throughout your claim, so you know what is happening and when, and can consult our network of professionals for expert evidence to strengthen your case.
