When in business, you can’t do everything yourself and have to rely on professionals and experts to advise you in all sorts of areas. Most businesses will deal with accountants and lawyers but you may also deal with other professionals, such as architects, surveyors, IT consultants and agents of all sorts. There are many more than can be listed here and exactly who you use will depend on the nature of your business.
And what all these professionals and experts have in common is that they can make mistakes but, in a business context, their mistakes can cost you a lot.
Making a claim against them for negligence can be fraught with difficulties. Some are insured for such claims but a lot are not. Most will have tried to exclude or limit their liability in the small print of their contract but there are often complex arguments about whether these limitations of liability are valid. If you do make a claim, you will often find yourself being stalled and confronted at every juncture.
