I introduced a buyer (based in Hong Kong) to a gallerist

Customer Question

I introduced a buyer (based in Hong Kong) to a gallerist (based in London), in May. The client bought a painting from the gallerist, paying £6,000 into his account. The deal was made between them, the invoice came from the gallery to the client.
The gallery has not sent the artwork, is not returning calls or emails, and now the client wants to press charges. The client is threatening me with legal action, and implying the use of force. In the eyes of the law, am I in any way responsible? I have taken no payment from either side and made no guarantees - just the introduction.
