Slaughter and May is being sued for alleged negligence and breach of contract by a client that claims the firm drafted a faulty licence agreement.
Engineering and consultancy group Mott MacDonald claims the firm was negligent when it advised on a contract with David Settle over the use of his Quality Assurance System (QAS).
