In this webinar, Kate Selway KC and Sophia Rogers discuss the Court of Appeals decision in Hirachand v Hirachand  EWCA Civ 1498.
Sophia Rogers acted for the successful respondent in this landmark case regarding CFA funding in claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
The judgment is of major significance to private client solicitors and confirms that the court may, in its discretion, make provision for a party’s CFA success fees as part of an award under the Inheritance Act. It also addresses the requirement for adjustments to be made for debarred parties at hearings; distinguishing between debarred parties permitted only to ‘attend’ a hearing and ‘participating’ parties.
