In major construction projects a diverse number of professional parties can become involved and when things don’t go according to plan, it can be difficult to establish which party is liable under the law.
Surveyors, architects and building professionals are expected to exercise their duties with reasonable skill and care, and where they fail to meet this requirement, a professional negligence claim may arise.
At WRJ Solicitors we have successfully acted for both construction professionals and those who have suffered loss as a result of negligence during a construction project. Our partner-led, specialist litigation team has many years of experience advising and representing companies and individuals in all areas of the construction industry. We provide a full, professional service that can assist you regardless of your circumstances, from raising a claim for professional negligence to representation in court or at an appeal. Our lawyers will take care of the legal complexities involved in your construction professional negligence claim, so you can concentrate on running your business, or completing your construction project.
Whether you’re a builder, surveyor, architect or other construction professional or firm, we’ll make it simple to understand your obligations under the law and help you build a strong case to ensure your livelihood and professional reputation are protected. Contact us today.
We are a partner-led, niche litigation practice based in Central London and in order to provide an exceptional service for our clients, we only offer strategic, high-level advice and representation.

Specialist Construction Professional Negligence Representation
As litigation experts in professional negligence in the construction industry, we fully understand the complexities of our client’s legal issues. We know that not all errors made by construction professionals will result in a successful claim, and that is why we will advise in your best interests as to whether your claim will be likely to succeed before proceeding to litigation.
Defending Professional Negligence Claims In the Construction Industry
In all construction projects there may be errors which lead to a delay in the process, but if as a construction professional you have exercised your duty with reasonable care and skill, these errors will not necessarily result in a successful claim being made against you. Our specialist team have acted for various construction professionals across a great number of projects, successfully assisting them to protect their professional reputation.
Making a Claim Against a Construction Industry Professional
We understand how frustrating it can be for a construction project to be delayed, or for work to be substandard – especially when you suffer loss as a result. There are a number of parties responsible for getting your project from design stage through to completion, and at each stage, there is the potential for things to go wrong, which may lead to delays and financial difficulty. If you have suffered loss as a result of professional negligence on the part of a construction professional, our specialist team can assist you in outlining clearly which party was responsible, and liable under the law. Establishing negligence under these circumstances can be difficult, and that is why you need a team of experienced litigation solicitors to help you reclaim loss suffered as a result of professional negligence. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
