CFA Squabbles…………

The case of Evans -v- Enterprise Group Holdings is an interesting and useful case to read in the context of ‘Bailey’ and costs claimed under a CFA post 1 November 2015.

Be warned it is a long Judgment! The key part to read is paragraph 53 a-f, where it sets out the procedure that should be adopted by Judge’s when faced with retainer validity questions.

If anyone has any recent experiences of the procedure adopted by the Court’s following retainer validity disputes, then please feel free to share them through this blog.
