In times of growth and economic prosperity advice given may often be over-optimistic. Possible errors go largely unnoticed when things are going well and the advice is rarely challenged. However in light of the current economic climate professional advice is being scrutinised and errors are being highlighted. Professionals are now in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons and errors made, whether due to negligence or fraud, are becoming more and more common.

There is a vast spectrum of professions which come within the ambit of “professionals”. We are well used to hearing about medical negligence claims but until recently claims against other professionals have gone largely unnoticed. Claims against the likes of lawyers, accountants, architects, brokers, bankers are becoming more common as mistakes made during the Celtic Tiger are now surfacing.
