PodCost with Martyn Griffiths
This PodCost focuses on the perils of disputes between solicitors and clients and how to prevent them. Martyn Griffiths, Jeremy Morgan KC and Andy Ellis start by discussing the ongoing effects of the Supreme Court's decision in the PACCAR case.
The conversation moves on to three recent cases covering:
- The rights of beneficiaries to assess costs payable by the estate.
- How solicitors are paid when a client ends a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) and switches to another firm.
- Whether Part 36 applies to disputes between solicitors and clients (it doesn't).
Martyn wraps up the session by offering practical advice for litigators on both avoiding and, if necessary, handling solicitor/client assessments.
