November 24, 2014 — Benoît Chartier successfully represented an engineering firm against a claim of some $400K arising from the discovery of a partial settlement of a building. The firm had inspected the building, a retirement home, that had been sold through a complex series of transactions.
The Superior Court’s decision, released on November 14, released our client from liability, for two reasons:
- Because of the series of transactions that led to the sale, our client had no obligation towards the plaintiff since the parties had no legal relationship between them;
- Our client had correctly carried out the mandate it had been given.
