Professional Negligence Claims

We are experienced in acting as an Expert Witness in professional negligence cases, where poor accounting professional advice has resulted in a loss.

Our Forensic Team prepare robust Expert reports which set out the basis for the negligent claim and quantification of the financial impact and direct and indirect losses arising as a result.

We can also independently advise on reports or commentary submitted by accounting and audit professionals, and provide a detailed critique of claims submitted as part of legal proceedings.

We are highly experienced in the requirements of preparing a CPR Compliant Expert report in accordance with Part 35, and understand the underlying duty of an Expert is to the Court and not to the end client.

Our specialist team can assist with:

  • Negligence of Auditors
  • Negligence of Tax Auditors
  • Negligence of Accounting Advisory
  • Mis-selling of Tax Avoidance Schemes
  • Loss Quantification
  • Non-compliance with Accounting Standards
  • Negligence in respect of Due Diligence procedures

We worked with MHA Tait Walker’s Forensic Team on a high value auditor’s negligence claim for a client in the freight forwarding sector. MHA Tait Walker’s expert advice was critical to our achievement of a good settlement for our client. Their advice was robust, cogent and accessible and David and Maria were a delight to work with throughout.
