Candey Ltd. v Crumpler [2022] UKSC 35

This is the third in a trilogy of recent cases in which the Supreme Court has had to consider the ambit and application of the so-called solicitors lien. In this case, the Supreme Court had to consider the circumstances in which solicitors will have waived (or be inferred to have waived) their equitable lien when they enter into a security arrangement with a client. David Holland KC of Landmark Chambers acted for the Respondent Liquidators leading Stephen Robins KC of South Square instructed by Susan Moore of Faegre Drinker and Paul Hollands of Stephenson Harwood. The judgement may be found here. The full news item on this case is available here.
