Flatman v Germany [2013] EWCA Civ 278

DATE: 10 Apr 2013

The Court of Appeal held that a solicitor who funds a client’s disbursements on the basis that he will not seek to recover the cost from that client if the action fails is not, without more, acting outside the normal role of a solicitor and is thus not, without more, liable to a third party costs order.

David Holland QC acted for the Law Society as Intervening Party.
