p At Biggart Baillie, we have a number of specialists who deal with professional risk issues. We aim to deliver a swift, proactive service for our clients.

We can readily access the know-how of our expert teams in the key areas of property, employment, infrastructure, environment and corporate.


p What we do

Professional Negligence: We represent a wide range of clients in negligence claims including solicitors, accountants, architects, surveyors and professional bodies amongst others. Whether acting for insurers, corporate organisations or individuals, we aim to provide sound and early advice. In all cases, we strive to achieve a speedy resolution and handle claims in a proactive and positive manner.

Disciplinary Issues: A negligence claim may raise other professional issues such as disciplinary matters. At Biggart Baillie, we have extensive experience of representing clients in proceedings before their disciplinary bodies. We can also draw on the skills of our specialist employment team and pensions unit where required.

Mediation: It’s not all about going to court. Mediation is an increasingly common way of resolving disputes that often results in a speedy, confidential and cost effective resolution to claims. At Biggart Baillie, we have three fully qualified mediators.

Judicial Review: A challenge to the decision of a disciplinary body may involve a judicial review. We regularly advise clients on a wide range of administrative law issues and represent clients in Court of Session judicial review proceedings.
