Perry v Raleys Solicitors (2019) UKSC 5


Represented, with John Greenbourne, the claimant. The Supreme Court reversed the Court of Appeal’s decision upholding the claim for professional negligence, and identified a clear line between what a claimant must prove before the assessment of the lost chance takes place. Where the solicitor has failed to advise a claimant on a potential claim, the claimant must prove on the balance of probabilities that s/he would have brought a claim if proper advice had been given. The Supreme Court reaffirmed the limited basis on which appellate courts may reverse a trial judge’s findings of fact.
