For more than fifty years Holmes has represented clients taking and defending professional negligence claims.
We have experience dealing with complex high value claims against legal, financial and construction professionals. We act in matters ranging from routine third-party discovery to complex, multi-jurisdictional lawsuits, and regulatory actions. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality advice. We strive for efficient, favourable resolutions, but we also have a strong record of accomplishment of taking cases to trial and winning. We regularly act in arbitrations, expert determinations, mediations and court proceedings before the High Court and Commercial Court.
Over the years we have developed contacts with some of the finest expert witnesses in the country, with whom we often consult in our work. We deliver insightful, practical advice and representation in defending claims for breach of duty / negligence, but also advise on related areas that arise under professional indemnity policies such as Directors and Officers (D&O), fraud, employment practices liability, defamation, discrimination, professional discipline, and data protection. Our client list is diverse – including global, national and London Market insurers, underwriters, Lloyd’s syndicates, and brokers.
