Devereux has a thriving professional negligence group, including leading silks and a number of talented juniors who are well respected and popular with leading solicitors and clients. Our members are involved in some of the most complex and high value claims in the field. Their reputations and expertise is reflected in the legal directories.

We have extensive experience of bringing and defending claims involving a wide range of professional and other specialist advisers, including those operating in legal services, the insurance sector, the financial sector, the construction industry, energy and natural resources and also accountants, auditors and medical practitioners. Our clients also benefit from our knowledge and experience of the insurance and reinsurance market.

We offer advice at every stage of a claim from advising on the merits and quantum of cases, to drafting pre-action protocol letters of claim and response, statements of case and mediation position statements, and attending mediations and representing clients in arbitrations, at trial or on appeal.  Our approach is strategic, robust and pragmatic.

Our Queen's Counsel accept instructions pursuant to 'QC' clauses in professional indemnity policies and frequently act as arbitrators.
