The former chairman of Swansea City Football Club is suing his ex-solicitors over their advice not to institute divorce proceedings.
Huw Jenkins claims to have suffered a £2.25m loss after south Wales firm John Collins & Partners LLP advised him in 2011 his finances were not sufficiently stable to reach to a financial settlement with his wife.
Jenkins’ club had recently been promoted to the Premier League and his financial position improved substantially as a result: when the divorce was finalised in 2017 he ended up paying a £2.25m lump sum to his wife, as well as transferring assets and making periodical payments.
The dispute has come to light through a judgment discussing technicalities about the service and time limits of the claim.
