Appeal Court action for SIF

The Solicitor's Indemnity Fund must go to the Court of Appeal in a compensation battle against a property developer. The move follows a payout made in a claim in respect of a property venture between the developer and a solicitor. The Court of Appeal set aside a £304,777 High Court award for damages and interest against the developer, and given it leave to appeal, ruling that the developer, represented by Holmes Hardingham Walser Johnston Winter, has a reasonable prospect of successfully defending the claim.
