Osborne Clarke facing multi-million pound negligence claim

FTSE 100 housebuilders Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon Homes have commenced proceedings against law firm Osborne Clarke for negligence and breach of contract.

The Developers claim the Defendant solicitors were professionally negligent in relation to the drafting of two option agreements and ancillary advice relating to the development of land at Grove Airfield Oxfordshire (Claim BL-2018-002520).

The Developers say that the value of their claim is in the region of £10m and Osborne Clarke’s fee claim is for a sum of in excess of £400K.
