As a business owner, you will often need to rely on the advice and services of professionals, be they lawyers, accountants, financial advisers, surveyors and architects. When these professionals make a mistake or give careless or incorrect advice that results in financial or other loss, you may be entitled to bring a case for professional negligence against them and claim compensation.
