Andre Zahra SC, and his junior Jonathan Burnett from 11 Wentworth Chambers, successfully defended their client, Sparke Helmore, in the NSW Court of Appeal against claims of professional negligence for allegedly failing to remind a client of advice they had already given. The Court of Appeal overturned the judgment of the primary judge and dismissed all claims against Sparke Helmore with costs, following the “general rule” that a solicitor is not negligent in failing to remind a client of advice already given or to advise the client of what the client already knows.
