    • Acting on behalf of two investors who loaned money to an engineering company under two debentures. The debentures were inadequate as they failed to provide any security to the two individuals, contrary to their instructions. We are now providing our clients with corporate as well as professional negligence advice in their claim against a commercial law firm.
