Lawyer's malpractice in Amsterdam is often referred to as legal representative negligence, it can take place in any area of the law and the outcome can be in the form of simple negligence, gross negligence, breach of contract, etc. In such cases, the client's interest can be damaged by lawyers in many ways such as missing an act of limitation, failing to designate experts or proper witnesses, failing to conduct and respond to discovery, etc. Legal malpractice in Amsterdam also occurs when the lawyer puts his interests above the client's interest or there is drafting error while drafting the document or agreement. To avoid such malpractices in Amsterdam, it's very important for the lawyer to be aware of the substantive law, get client's consent, keep client updated, meet deadlines, investigate the case appropriately, etc. The lawyer is also suggested to avoid errors like administrative errors, the errors which occur while drafting errors or being unable to meet deadlines, etc. Substantive errors are the errors which occur due to non awareness of law relating to the issue, etc, and client relation errors are the errors which take place when the lawyer is not aware of the client's instructions, what the client expects from the lawyer, etc.
