Robert McCann v Messrs Waddell and Macintosh
Solicitors & Others
30 January 2014
Court of Sesison
The Court of Session looked to determine whether the defenders failed in their duty to properly advise the Claimant in Robert McCann v Messrs Waddell and Macintosh Solicitors & Ors (2014) where the Claimant’s father had acted as his agent in the sale of land. Lindsay Ogunyemi looks at the Court’s approach in assessing whether the Defenders were negligent and stresses the importance of establishing the provenance of instructions received from an agent.
