LEADING libel lawyer Peter Carter-Ruck of Peter Carter-Ruck and Partners is facing a bill of tens of thousands of pounds for legal fees after failing to resolve a dispute with his own partners. The dispute arose when 84-year-old Carter-Ruck found his name listed as "founder and consultant", not "senior partner", on the firm's letterheads, and his name removed from the firm's website references to the libel victories for MPs Neil Hamilton and Gerald Howarth.
After running up large fees with Clifford Chance, Carter-Ruck switched to the smaller firm of Swepstone Walsh.
