Bolt Burdon Solicitors v Tariq and others

Solicitor – Costs. The Queen's Bench Division allowed the claimant solicitors claim for recovery of 50% of the final sum recovered on behalf of the defendants from the bank under a Contingency Fee Agreement on that basis that the agreement properly construed had not required that any offer of compensation by the bank needed to be obtained through the claimant's efforts, nor was such a term necessary to give the agreement business efficacy.
