Why the client needed our help

Our client, a private individual, had issued a claim against a large firm of solicitors alleging professional negligence in a case she had instructed them on. The firm had issued an application to strike out her claim and she wanted our help pushing it through.

How we helped

We defended our client’s claim against the strike out from the solicitors.

The outcome

We were successful in our defence which meant that our client was able to continue pursuing her claim against the firm.

I have found FWJ to be perceptive, to the point and realistic. They have been able to assimilate and forcefully defend a very aggressive claim with very limited historic information.
