Professionals who act on behalf of others, anything from financial advisors, solicitors, surveyors, accountants to estate agents all have a duty of care towards their clients. You do not always have to have a written agreement, there are standards expected of a reasonably competent professional and they have a duty to act in your best interests.

To sue you must be able to prove there has been a financial loss as a result of the breach.

Where you have suffered a loss due to the negligence of your solicitor, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Compensation can often be claimed if an accountant has caused you a loss as a result of negligent advice or incorrect accounting and auditing.
If an architect provides inaccurate, defective or misleading plans, or a surveyor provides incorrect reports, it's likely that you will have incurred a loss as a result.
