Where circumstance dictate, however, litigation at MKB Law is zealously pursued using our extensive experience and knowledge of the systems and procedures of the Commercial, Chancery, Queen’s Bench and County Courts. You can find out more about this service on our Commercial Disputes page.

Judicial Review

Judicial Review is an ever-burgeoning specialism with which we at MKB Law are particularly well-equipped to deal with. There is an ever increasing tendency for aggrieved individuals to ask the Courts to intervene in the decision making processes of public bodies. Judicial Review will assess the lawfulness of a decision, rather than the merits of the outcome.

The Disputes and Litigation team at MKB Law can assist with areas such as:
The holding of public office
Family matters such as special educational provisions for children

Our lawyers can advise and guide you through the processes of the pre-action protocol, the leave application and the substantive hearing itself, availing of specialist Counsel to assist in the preparation and presentation of a case to the High Court.

Professional Negligence

There are regrettably instances where the standard of professional service provided by advisers to their client falls short. This can occur, for example, where a professional presents themselves as having more experience or skills than they actually possess or where they have been incompetent in the work they have carried out for you or your business.

Professional negligence cases take many forms and can be applied to any service in which you have been offered expert advice. The most common areas in which we see claims are:

Quantity surveying
Solicitor services
Financial advice
Insurance brokers

Whether you are an individual or a commercial client, and are unhappy with the service or advice given to you by a professional, our Disputes and Litigation team will help you with any case of professional negligence. With a wealth of experience in this area of the law, we are leading professional negligence solicitors in Belfast. You can find out more about this service on our Professional Negligence page.
