Counterclaim not exempt from limitation by right
The claimant firms of solicitors sought to recover their fees from their former clients. In answer the defendants sought to say that they should be allowed to counterclaim in negligence saying that as a counterclaim, section 35(3) of the 1980 Act operated to allow the counterclaim as of right.
Held: That was not the effect of the subsection.
