Your professional advisers owe you a duty of care; they should act competently and in your best interest. Professional advisers can include auditors and accountants, lawyers, property surveyors, and insurance brokers.
Disputes arise when a professional adviser does not give a sufficiently high level of advice or service, and as a result you suffer loss or damage. Professionals are insured to cover claims against them, and under these circumstances a claim can be mounted against the professional, who will refer it to his insurer to deal with on his behalf.
The ideal settlement would, of course, be reached by way of an amicable agreement. Where this is unsuccessful, or impossible, a solution might be sought through arbitration, mediation or ultimately litigation in the courts. In many cases, this litigation can be undertaken on a no-win, no-fee basis.
