Welcome to the latest edition of ATEMatters from Legal Protection Group. The doctrine of Champerty takes the headline act this month following the judgment on assignment of a case from client to solicitor firm. The long running saga of Bott & Co. v Ryanair now appears to have come to conclusion and this is a Supreme Court decision and a case history well worth a read. Colley v MIB is another case of interest which considers the latter’s obligations following the ab initio void of a car insurance policy for misrepresentation. Next up a case I have personally been keeping a close eye on and one with, once again, a Part 36 offer under the spotlight. Finally in this edition we look into the muddy pool of Fundamental Dishonesty and its application in relation to a litigant in person.
