In the modern business environment, businesses and individuals are increasingly reliant upon their professional advisors. When that advice is inadequate or simply wrong, you need an experienced team to resolve the problems that arise.

Edwin Coe has a long established reputation for excellence in the conduct of professional negligence and professional liability disputes. Members of our team have been at the forefront of many of the leading cases in this developing area of law. We regularly act in claims against insurance intermediaries, financial advisors, solicitors, accountants and surveyors. Furthermore, because we are not tied to any particular insurer, we rarely have to turn down instructions due to conflicts of interest.

Our expertise in insurance means that we are also instructed by individuals and firms seeking coverage advice on their D&O and professional indemnity insurance and in connection with liability and regulatory issues. We are advisors to the Insurance Brokers’ Standards Council and a number of leading organisations dedicated to refining the scope of the duties owed by professionals in specific sectors.

Examples of our work include:

For Claimants

  • Various claims against insurance brokers for failing to arrange appropriate insurance, for underinsurance and for negligent advice on the operation of warranties and conditions precedent
  • Claims against accountants for negligent advice, including tax and business advice
  • Claims against IFAs for pensions and investments mis-selling
  • Claims against surveyors and valuers arising from negligent advice given in relation to mortgage valuation reports in respect of both commercial and residential properties

For Defendants

  • Advising on the regulatory issues involved in the development and sale of various products and instruments, both inside and outside the regulatory perimeter
  • Acting for various insurance and financial intermediaries in the course of investigation and enforcement proceedings by the FCA
  • Advising brokers, solicitors and construction professionals on coverage issues arising on their professional indemnity insurance.
