Professional Negligence & the Bellavia approach.

All professionals, from financial advisors to surveyors, solicitors to tradesmen, are expected to practice their trade to a high standard of skill and care. However, things don’t always go according to plan.

Figuring out what went wrong and how the law applies in particular circumstances can be complicated. It is vitally important to take swift action to mitigate or recover losses.

We have vast experience in acting for both claimants and defendants in professional negligence claims and with that a large body of knowledge pertaining to the law and procedure that is relevant to complex and varied cases.


We give sensible and practical advice aimed at reaching an effective resolution and use our well-acclaimed advocacy abilities to guard our clients’ interests.

We offer a detailed yet speedy assessment of the issues at hand and aim to be fully transparent about the costs involved and what funding options might be available to you. 

Making a Professional Negligence Claim

If a professional breached their duty of care against you and caused you to suffer loss, the law entitles you to recourse. This requires a detailed and thorough investigation into all the aspects of the case to establish this if a professional negligence claim is to succeed. 

Such a claim must follow strict procedural requirements and protocols. 

We will handle such matters and be your guide through the entire process, to ensure a satisfactory conclusion.

Defending Against a Professional Negligence Claim

If you are accused of a breach in your duty of care in respect to a service you have provided, you will need to swiftly make a defence against any unfounded claims. This is vital to protecting your reputation and professional standing.

We help professionals to challenge professional negligence claims, assisting them in testing the validity of any such allegations made against them. 

Our expert negotiating skills will be used to assist professionals in discussing the possibility of a settlement and can also be of help in professional disciplinary proceedings.
