The practicalities

Do solicitors sue other lawyers?

For some people, it comes as a surprise that solicitors are willing to sue other solicitors for negligence. In reality, far from being a form of cosy relationship between fellow lawyers, the legal world is highly competitive. It is entirely commonplace (and quite right) that solicitors sue other lawyers to seek redress for any damage caused by reason of negligent advice or representation. If that were not the case, then clients who have suffered at the hands of poor advice would face an uphill struggle in putting things right.
