Wakeling v. Harrington [2007] EWHC 1184, Ch D, 15/5/07

Description

Agreement between Claimant and Solicitor. An agreement between the Claimant and his solicitor concerning the amount of fees payable, which fees were ultimately to be paid by the Defendant under a costs order, had not amounted to a void contingency agreement, and on its proper interpretation, the agreement had not released the Claimant from any further liability to pay costs to the solicitor. The mere fact that the Claimant had agreed that he would not bring an action for his outstanding costs was not necessarily a complete release of any further liability; the agreement was capable of being merely an agreement not to enforce liability in one particular way.
