The claimant was funded by insurers so it was important to obtain a rapid assessment of the claim’s quantum. Whilst we identified that no direct loss could be proven in respect of the product line allegedly impacted by the new concession, the claimant did have a potential claim in respect of other actions taken by the department store in earlier years.
