Solicitor – Negligence. The claimant retained the defendant solicitors' firm in relation to a property transaction. Matters did not go well for the claimant and he brought a claim in negligence against the defendant alleging breach of duty of care. The defendant denied the allegation. The Queen's Bench found that the claimant had failed to prove any breach of duty on the part of the defendant in relation to any of the grounds alleged against it and so the claim failed in its entirety.
