The initial law firm are no longer in a position to assist and are therefore passing the case to another firm if my father consents.. The issue is that they still expect to be paid, even though they are now not able to help due to issues at their firm..It has nothing to do with the case, they appear to have some restructuring or business issues at their firm so surely it is their own problem and shouldn't expect payment for not being able to progress the case.. If it was my father dropping the case he would still be liable, so why should my father have to pay for services not completed.
They will require payment for what they have allegedly done up to now..then they are going to pass the case on to a new law firm..where a new CFA will be set up.. It appears there is a case, but they are now saying they are not equipped to handle it.. surely this is not right and this firm should not have took on the case originally
