Barnett and another v Creggy

Account – Action for. The proceedings concerned an action brought by the claimants, seeking an account and associated enquiries against their former solicitor, the defendant. The Chancery Division held that the claim for an account in respect of any period before 1 August 1998 failed. However, there should be an account of all sums received by or to the order of the defendant from or at the direction of the claimant from 1 August 1998 and, further, an order that the defendant pay to the first claimant compensation for breach of duty in procuring the unauthorised payment of a sum to a third party.
