Hi there and thank you for your question,
Did the amount that you paid to the lawyer represent the capital amount (i.e. the damages) or did it represent the complainant's lawyer's legal fees? If legal fees, what was the agreement that you would pay? Was it ALL of the legal fees, or the legal fees calculated according to the high court tariff, and if on the tariff was it the party-party fees or the attorney-client fees?
