On 22nd October 2013 i attended the Court of Appeal with a client to seek leave to appeal a ruling of the lower court which in my view was inherently wrong.
The client whilst acting as a litigant in person had lost at the Court hearing in the County Court, and had then had permission to appeal refused on the papers. My firm was instructed late in the day, and took the case forward on a no win no fee basis, thus showing the strength of the case in my eyes.
We prepared amended grounds of appeal and secured a very good barrister (Thomas Brennan) to assist us. I must say a special thank you to Tom, without his help we would not have got this far.
Anyway , we were before Lord Justice Christopher Clarke and we successfully secured permission on the main grounds as we had set them out.
The case will now proceed to a full hearing before 3 Lords of Appeal. If our appeal succeeds then it will have far reaching consequences for many lenders.
