Jack’s professional negligence experience includes:
- Accountants’ negligence, for example a multi-million pound claim dealing with the tax treatment of a solicitor’s CFA work-in-progress (junior to Ben Quiney QC).
- A TCC case in Liverpool arising out of the collapse of a wall on neighbouring land due to lateral pressure exerted by the defendant’s land; the defendant in turn claimed against a third party which provided a geo-environmental engineering report on the land which (allegedly) negligently failed to identify the risk to the wall. The client achieved a very favourable settlement.
- Claims relating to the negligent conduct of personal injury actions, for example advising in a case where the claimant’s solicitors allegedly failed to protect her against adverse costs consequences following late acceptance of Part 36 offers in her personal injury claim.
