In negligence proceedings arising out of advice given by the defendants' solicitors firm to the claimant with regard to the occupation by a third party of premises of which the claimant was the lessee, the court ruled, inter alia, that on the evidence, the defendants had advised the claimant that the arrangement with the third party was a tenancy, advice which the claimant had rejected in its dealings with the third party, and accordingly the claim would fail.
