Court of Appeal Decision – Law Society Complaint & Confidentiality

The Court of Appeal has held (in dismissing an appeal) that a Barrister who made a complaint against his instructing Solicitor did not owe a duty of care to the Solicitor by not disclosing details of the outcome of the adjudication when the content of the complaint against the Solicitor did not contain a private subject matter.

Mr Michael Napier Solicitor appealed against a decision by Mr Justice Eady not to grant an injunction against Pressdram Ltd to prevent it from publishing details of the complaint in its well know magazine ‘Private Eye’.

However as the matter regarded a conflict of interest complaint no injunction was granted. The matter was unsuccessfully appealed.
