Holt v Payne Skillington & De Groot Collis
Citation: 77 BLR 51; 49 Con LR 99;  PNLR 179
Nature of case:
De Groot Collis (“DGC”) appealed against the trial judge’s decision that it owed a tortious duty to Holt, and was liable as a result of Payne Skillington’s advice to Holt. DGC argued that, where a contract existed between Payne and Holt, all duties and responsibilities between the parties were limited by either express or implied terms.
