Can I sue a lawyer for wrong advice?


Yes, you can. “One of the key responsibilities a lawyer has towards his client is handling a case with due diligence and speed,” says Denyse Yeo, senior associate at Tito Isaac & Co LLP. “To succeed in such a claim, you’ll need to show that the lawyer failed to act in a way that a competent professional in his position would have done.” That means your lawyer isn’t up to standard. And to claim damages, you’d need to show what losses you’ve suffered, Denyse adds.
