"Gimmee your money"
What is the status of a costs entitlement of a solicitor under a conditional fee agreement and how does one go about suing for a solicitor’s entitlement under that agreement? Is the claim to be brought under Part 7 or Part 8? What is the principle behind the court’s approach in this area? Where does the law stand on questions of contentious and non-contentious business agreements and the client’s liability under them?
Oliver Manley and John Churchill, both members of the Guildhall Chambers Costs Team will address these issues in light of the recent decision of Healys LLP v Partridge  EWHC 2471 (Ch), where Oliver Manley acted for the solicitors involved. They will also pose questions which remain unanswered in this area.
These Breakfast Bite sessions are usually over-subscribed so spaces may be limited and numbers restricted per firm.
Breakfast & refreshments will be provided.
