 Professional Negligence Dispute Mediation

Professional negligence disputes frequently involve allegations of poor advice, negligence and sometimes even fraud.

Allegations of professional negligence require sensitive handling.  Claimants may frequently feel let-down, angry or distressed.  The individual or firm against whom the complaint has been made may feel concerned and anxious.  There may also be an insurer involved, with its own commercial demands. Where an insurer is involved, coverage issues may arise between the insurer and the insured.

Mediation, unlike litigation, can often manage such disputes quickly, sensitively, and confidentially.  The mediated approach can work for the client, the professional adviser and the insurance company. For professional advisers who have received a complaint, perhaps consider mediation, rather than letting the matter go to the regulatory authority.
