We provide legal services for Professional Indemnity insurers and professionals across a broad spectrum of professional negligence claims.
Our team, which is the largest specialist Professional Indemnity team in Northern Ireland, has a long established reputation for successfully defending complex negligence claims against professionals.

As a full service law firm, we work alongside our Corporate, Commercial, Construction, Planning, Real Estate, and Regulatory teams to bring additional value, expertise, and market knowledge to support you in dealing with professional indemnity claims.
We hold long established relationships with national insurers, as well as UK based law firms who seek our local expertise in handling matters in this jurisdiction. We deal with claims involving solicitors, accountants, brokers, valuers, architects, engineers, surveyors and other construction related professionals, and financial advisors.
We adopt a strategic approach alongside proactive case management. Our team has local, market-leading, experience and is able to resolve a broad range of professional negligence disputes in the High Court, Court of Appeal and the local Courts. We are also adept at the use of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, which enables us to achieve significant cost savings for our clients.
