The producer had previously leased out the property to a tenant. The producer’s attorney completed the sale transaction to a new owner without consulting her. The tenant maintained she had a right of first refusal. She was able to decide whether or not to vacate the property and approve the sale. Consequently, the tenant successfully sued the producer for neglecting his tenant. In turn, the producer filed suit against his real estate attorney. An expert qualified to comment on the right of first refusal in real estate transactions was required to assess whether the attorney had neglected any duties to his client.
