Financial Advisers. Tim was successful in a three-day trial in the High Court in a claim against an IFA where the issues concerned liability not only in contract and tort but also pursuant to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. Judgment was for over £500,000 plus costs. The claim continued because the defendants insurers refused to indemnify and a claim directly against insurers was settled successfully at mediation.
Solicitors. Tim has recently acted for a client in a claim against their former solicitors.The claim was a complex loss of chance claim following the dismissal of the clients appeal to the Court of Appeal (reported at 2016 EWCA 1258) against a relief from sanctions application.
Solicitors arising from failed banking claims. For example CGL Group Limited versus Royal Bank of Scotland plc and National Westminster bank plc (2017 EWCA CIV 1073.)
Architects. Tim Is currently advising on a claim against an architect who designed a residential construction with an inadequate ground floor slab construction. The claim also involves a claim against the Structural Engineer
Accountants. Tim is currently acting for a client who has brought proceedings against her accountant for negligent tax advice arising out of the accountants advice concerning CGT and Entrepreneurs Tax Relief in connection with share sale proceeds of over £1 million.
Solicitors and barristers. Tim has recently been instructed in connection with a potential claim against solicitors and barristers arising out of a failed boundary dispute.
