High Court success

September 1, 2013

Forest Edge were recently successful in the High Court securing a substantial award for their client following a professional negligence claim. A Solicitor had been instructed to make a will for a client but choose not to do so. This resulted in losses being suffered by the intended residuary beneficiary. This case reiterates the duties of a Solicitor to their client when receiving instructions to prepare a will and goes further by confirming how any losses subsequently incurred may be claimed if the will is not made. The case is now reported : Lorraine Studholme Feltham v Freer Bouskell [2013] EWHC 1952 (ch).
