Abstract: Solicitors owe their clients fiduciary obligations. One of the questions that has concerned fiduciary law for some time is whether these fiduciary obligations include a positive duty to disclose information to a client. Suppose a solicitor knows information from an independent source that will impact on the client's decision to proceed with a transaction. Is the solicitor under a fiduciary obligation to disclose the information, so that a failure to make disclosure will lay the solicitor open to a remedy in equity?
