Coll v Floreat Merchant Banking Ltd and others

Solicitor – Undertaking. The claimant made an application in the course of other proceedings to have the defendants and a solicitor committed for breach of an undertaking which was not an undertaking to the court. The Queen's Bench Division considered the jurisdiction of the court to commit for breach of an undertaking given by a solicitor other than an undertaking to the court; as well as whether the court should exercise any discretion it had to allow committal proceedings to be brought on the facts of this case.
