Practical advice and strategic support for insurers and professional services firms …
Professional services firms are in a special, often vulnerable position, due to the sensitivity and importance of the advice they provide. This means that if disputes, complaints or claims arise, it pays to have the support of a law firm with specialist expertise in this area.
Weightmans Professional Risk team advises insurers and clients large and small across the whole professional services sector, including lawyers, accountants, engineers, surveyors, architects, brokers and financial advisers.
We have the experience and expertise to resolve claims swiftly and efficiently, based on a firm understanding of the commercial context of your business. Our expert team can advise you on risk and how to reduce it, and put in place strategies to minimise exposure to claims.
Through our multi-disciplinary Legal Sector Group, we offer outsourcing options to law firms from complaints, claims and training to drafting employment policies. We also provide support on issues that often crop up in professional services work, such as conflicts of interest and applying the SRA Code of Conduct.
