Orientfield Holdings Ltd (a company registered and incorporated in the British Virgin Islands) v Bird & Bird LLP

Solicitor – Negligence. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the defendant solicitors' firm's appeal against the judge's finding that it had acted negligently in acting for the claimant in a property purchase. The judge had clearly and sufficiently considered what an appropriate summary of a report of nearby development would have revealed and his conclusion that the claimant would have withdrawn from the purchase before exchanging contracts was unassailable.
