When does a regulator pay costs? The Court of Appeal has spoken
Our client, a government agency, instructed us in its claim against a law firm.
Their negligence claim arose after disciplinary proceedings brought by our client were struck out by the disciplinary panel, primarily as a result of failures on the part of the law firm in relation to our client’s disclosure obligations in the proceedings. Our client sought our advice because they had been let down by their previous lawyers. Their claim was for a refund of the legal fees it paid to the law firm, rather than the usual damages claim.
At a pre-action mediation we secured a significant refund for our client, as well as most of its legal fees of pursuing the dispute.
