Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
Do you dispute the solicitors bill please - i.e. due to poor service for example?
Has your partner been able to supply you with evidence of payment of the claimed bill?
Did you have a partnership agreement?

My apologies - I had not spotted that this was NI law. I will opt out for a NI colleague
Hi, thanks for your reply I am currently trying to find the original paperwork for this account, we purchased several properties and paid the deposit etc. thru this solicitors practice. the solicitor's practice was a partnership. As there was a lot or work being done on our behalf at the same time we are trying to sort all that occurred as they were also dealing with a compensation case for assault (which they managed to let run for over 5 yrs.!) and a separate car accident claim our car was rear ended by a jeep. The practice closed down with the bulk of the business being sold over to another solicitor's practice this second practice finished the work on the two claims successfully and even made a repayment to me for monies paid to the other practice. I am at a loss as to how this person can now request payment to himself personally for work carried out by a practice that no longer exists. Can he request a payment be made to him and threaten me with the courts if its not paid?
hi, i'm sorry o keep bothering you from the records i can find this refers to work carried out august 2007 i haven't been able to find an invoice for this work but i'm sure it will turn it up in the next few days, assuming the work was invoiced within the next two months which would bring it up to oct/nov 2007 do i count the 6yrs from when the work was carried out or when the invoice was sent. also if this is now time barred how do i deal with this ie request that he accepts its time barred. thank you for your help.
