Professional Negligence Solicitors in Lincolnshire and across Central England

You may find yourself in the position where a professional has breached a duty of care causing you loss.  At Sills & Betteridge we can advise you on the possibility of making a claim against the professional for damages to compensate you for that loss. Usually, professionals will be insured and we will initially explore the possibility of reaching a settlement.

Whether you are a business or a private individual, such claims can be expensive and stressful. We can advise you on the costs implications and likelihood of success in any proposed or actual litigation.  Our lawyers deal with such disputes in an understanding, professional way, with a view to resolving the issues as quickly as possible.

Our lawyers can explore with you the possibility of alternative dispute resolution such as formal mediation instead of court proceedings, discussing the likely cost of the different options available stage by stage. Should legal proceedings become necessary, we have experienced advocates who can represent you in court and good relationships with excellent specialist barristers where appropriate.

  • DBS are delighted with the advice given by Euan McLaughlin regarding GDPR. Euan has helped us to make sense of this potential minefield and has put in place robust policies and terms that protect our organisation.

  • Corporate partner Martin Walsh, led a team from Sills, who were an integral part of the team working on our recent multi million pound Management Buy Out of Battles Ltd.

    Sills worked tirelessly to complete the transaction against a very tight deadline. Martin used his significant transaction experience and legal knowledge to find practical solutions to the inevitable issues that arose and provided some particularly sage advice when we had our most difficult meetings with the Vendor. Sills service levels were excellent, providing a fast response to communications and immediately turning around the transactional documents. I rate them very highly and would not hesitate in recommending Martin and the Sills corporate team to anyone buying or selling a company or business.

  • As CEO of  Sleaford Quality Foods I was delighted with the work  Sills & Betteridge very recently carried out for the group on the multi million pound acquisition in Sleaford of the land and building formerly occupied (following their closure) by Great Plains UK Ltd which site is directly opposite our current factory and Warehouse. Having been looking for land in Sleaford for some time to meet the demands of our very rapidly growing business,  our turnover is now in excess of £55 million, the location and the 8 acre plus site was perfect for us.

    I wanted the transaction completed very quickly so as not to lose the opportunity and to have minimum interference with our production. As suppliers of dried foods and spices to the food industry it was vital we did not let down our customers.

    I would in particular like to mention the work which Sills partner Martin Walsh, carried out for us in leading the Sills team. He worked very hard to ensure the transaction was completed to a very tight deadline.

    I have worked with Sills for a number of years and continue to be very impressed with them and have no hesitation in recommending Martin and the Sills team.

  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
