This article presents information related to south east firm Brachers that is awaiting the outcome of a Court of Appeal hearing over allegedly negligent advice it gave to two goat farmers. In the High Court, Justice Jack found Brachers negligent over advice to two claimants, who bought a goat farming business in the early 1990s. Judge Jack found that Brachers had failed to progress an action brought by the couple against the goats' seller after they found the herd was infected with Johne's disease.
