KBC Groupe SA's KBC Bank Faces Reconsideration of Contributory Negligence Charges-The Irish Times
Wednesday, 26 Jun 2013 08:00pm EDT 

The Irish Times reported that the Irish Supreme Court has ruled the High Court must reconsider its dismissal of contributory negligence by KBC Groupe SA's KBC Bank over multimillion losses suffered by it after a property developer and struck-off solicitor Thomas Byrne defaulted on EUR 25 million in loans. Contributory negligence may be established on evidence a bank failed to manage its business in accordance with sound administrative and accounting principles as required by EU regulations on the licensing and supervision of credit institutions, the court said. KBC Bank was last year awarded EUR 17.7 million damages against Dublin law firm BCM Hanby Wallace (now Byrne Wallace) after the High Court found "egregious" negligence by the firm in ensuring KBC had security for the loans. The bank sought security on 30 properties and got it on three, and the court found "multiple failures" by the firm repeated across four loan transactions.The solicitors claimed the effective cause of the bank's loss was its own failure to assess the borrowers and to supervise loan transactions. BCM appealed the rejection of contributory negligence by KBC but not the substantive finding of negligence against it.  Full Article
