Examples of recent cases where we have acted include: 

  • Advising clients who lost the proceeds of their house sale when hackers intercepted emails between them and their solicitors. Cyber crime is a growth area, with complex questions and fast developing law, so advice from specialists like us is crucial
  • Acting against solicitors who gave our clients poor advice about the inheritance tax implications of a trust arrangement, resulting in a much larger tax bill. Our professional negligence team worked with our nationally recognised wills and inheritance specialists to offer the best advice
  • Acting for an individual in a claim against their former solicitors who advised on a loan made by them to a company, which was subsequently dissolved. Our client is also pursuing a personal guarantee and we are working with another Cripps team to co-ordinate the two actions
  • Acting for an individual in a complex claim against their former solicitors regarding advice given in relation to a loan / investment. There are concerns regarding a significant conflict of interest and their failure to properly advise our client or follow their instructions
  • Representing a client bringing a claim against solicitors who negligently prepared a will, leaving our client as a disappointed beneficiary. Cripps offers expertise in both solicitor professional negligence claims and Will disputes, enabling our client to instruct us on both matters
  • Acting for a client following a commercial property purchase. Their former solicitors failed to properly report on the corporate and property due diligence process causing significant loss to them.  We have already obtained third party funding and arranged an ATE policy for our client.
