Although most barristers conduct a case with the skill, care and professionalism required there are occasions when this might not happen. A few examples of this are:
- When they provide a negligent opinion on a point of law
- Draft court documents incorrectly
- Negligent advocacy at trial
When fulfilling their role as a barrister they have a duty of care. If this duty is breached and you suffer a loss as a result you may have a claim for professional negligence against the barrister.
