Accountants' Liability

What we do

We have teams of professional indemnity lawyers in London, Leeds, Bristol and Dublin who specialise in representing accountants, actuaries, trustees, insolvency practitioners, other financial and consultancy professionals and their insurers in professional negligence claims, regulatory investigations and all court or regulatory proceedings.

What we are known for


Our accountancy clients include a number of firms from within the "Big Four" and the top 10 accountancy practices, as well as smaller accountancy firms and networks. We recognise the value of developing close working relationships with those clients. We understand the commercial and regulatory context in which accountants and professional advisers operate, and we offer practical, cost-effective, commercial solutions.

Detailed elements of our services

We advise on domestic and international matters including audit claims, tax claims including avoidance schemes, breaches of trust, wrongful/fraudulent trading, corporate valuations, frauds, regulatory and disciplinary investigations, insolvencies, risk management, and general dispute resolution. We are also at the forefront of advising on new challenges facing our clients, such as the threat of cybercrime including the theft of corporate data and the inadvertent loss, or publication of confidential client information.
