We are half way through February already so it is high time we brought you the latest edition of ATE Matters from Legal Protection Group!
First off this month, the Law Society CFA comes under the spotlight, in particular the clauses relating to a solicitor’s right to basic charges on termination. DBAs are a hot topic at the moment and the Court of Appeal decision in Zuberi v Lexlaw  further enhances their validity and use. Two key decisions regarding Part 36 are up next, the first of which we provided the ATE insurance for: The case of Pallett v MGN is probably one of the most significant decisions regarding the use of Part 36 for many years so a must to read up on; The second, if the claimant had had their way, would have given rise to a very bizarre situation. Finally this month, we take a look at a very interesting judgment on a clinical negligence case where primary limitation expired nearly 20 years ago!
