Solicitor Negligence. The defendant's counterclaim, alleging that the claimant law firm had been negligent, had been dismissed. The judge had found that there was no breach of duty, that causation for any losses there might have been had not been established and that there had been no loss. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the defendant's appeal, held that the defendant had fallen far short of demonstrating that the judge's conclusions on breach of duty and causation had not been open to him.
