Toronto Lawyer Handling Solicitor’s Negligence Claims

As a regulated profession, lawyers are held to a high threshold in carrying out their professional duties. In Ontario, lawyers are regulated by the Law Society of Ontario (LSO), which, among other things, sets ethical and professional standards of practice for practitioners in the province. Lawyers owe a duty of care to their clients and must always act in the client’s best interest as well as within the standards set by the LSO.

If you have received erroneous or negligent legal advice from a lawyer and it has resulted in financial or other harm to you, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. This type of claim can be challenging to pursue and requires representation by a lawyer who is experienced in litigating these matters. At NULaw we have the specific knowledge and experience needed to assist you in pursuing a solicitor’s negligence action.

What is Solicitor’s Negligence?

In general, all lawyers are expected to:

  • Protect the interests of their clients;
  • Carry out the client’s instructions;
  • Consult with the client if there is any doubt about instructions received;
  • Advise clients on all issues that are relevant to the client’s matter;
  • Keep the client informed.

If a lawyer has acted beneath the standard of care expected of them or made an error, and their behaviour has caused damage (financial or otherwise) to their client, that lawyer can be liable for negligence.
