Addleshaws faces fees hit in Hammonds dispute ruling
Addleshaw Goddard could face a hit on fees, with the firm using a conditional fee arrangement (CFA) for its representation of former partners in the ongoing profits dispute with Hammonds. Addleshaws, which uses CFAs on a majority of its litigation work, has been working under the arrangement for part of the Hammonds dispute. Mr Justice Warren's decision last week (13 February) that the former partners are bound by the partnership deed, means it is now unclear whether Addleshaws will be paid for all of its work on the issue if the ruling is upheld.
