Dispute Resolution - Professional Negligence

Position

Legal Director

Career

Kendal’s main expertise is in professional negligence claims against, amongst others, solicitors, accountants and financial advisors. His aim is twofold: to get the best outcome for his client and at the same time restore that client’s faith in those who provide professional services. This is achieved by a combination of technical skill and good, old-fashioned customer service.


East Midlands: Dispute resolution

Commercial litigation: Nottingham and Derby

Within: Commercial litigation: Nottingham and Derby

Shakespeare Martineau LLP's large presence in the East Midlands market is reflected by the fact that its dispute resolution offering is spread between the Nottingham and Leicester offices, with practice head Martin Noble splitting his time between both bases. Noble's team has experience of all types of general commercial litigation. In 2018, there was a notable increase in shareholder disputes, such as derivative actions and unfair prejudice petitions; legal director Steven Skiba is a name to note in this space. Associate partner Tim Speed is a go-to for banking litigation (including matters involving interpretation of the Consumer Credit Act and claims involving undue influence), and also provides support to clients in the energy sector in contentious matters. Legal director Kendal Litherland has more than 15 years of experience acting for claimants in professional negligence actions against solicitors, accountants and various other professional advisers.
