Financial intermediaries have a duty to ensure that financial products are properly constructed and sold to the appropriate client in the appropriate manner. Where an intermediary fails in that duty in a way that has a negative impact on your financial interests, you may have grounds for a professional negligence claim.

In many building cases, either defective design or construction can lead to a right of action by an owner against the professional team that provided the building.
