A & E Investments and Robert Kidd v Levy & McRae Solicitors LLP and Jonathan Brown  CSOH 14
At Debate the principal issue in this case is whether the success fee elements of an agreement between the pursuers and Levy & McRae, and between Levy & McRae and junior counsel are pacta de quota litis.
Lord Doherty upheld pursuer’s averments that the success fee arrangements upon which the defenders accepted instructions to act breached the pacta de quota litis principle.
Lord Doherty put case out by order for further procedure.
