22 December 2015

Reported by Phoebe Ida Ayaya

 

Brief facts

By a Motion on Notice dated 1st December, 2015, the firm of Ngatia & Associates Advocates, (“the Firm”) applied that it be joined as an interested party to these proceedings and that the orders made on 8th July, 2015 and/or consequential orders directing the apportionment and/or distribution of the funds in an account held by the said firm and the Chief Registrar, Judiciary (hereinafter referred to as (“the Account”) be stayed pending taxation of advocate/client bills of costs between the said firm and the ex parte applicant in a number of suits between the ex parte applicant and the interested party .It was further sought that the same orders be set aside and discharged and substituted with an order that the firm be entitled to offset and/or deduct all taxed costs due and owing from the ex parte applicant from the funds in the Account and the balance thereof be apportioned in such manner as may be decreed by the court. The application was based on the allegation that the said firm was owed substantial fees by the firm’s former client, the applicant for legal fees rendered to the applicant and that the firm had a lien on the said Account. To the firm, the funds were the only known asset of the applicant and in the event that the same was dissipated and/or apportioned in accordance with the order, the firm would be left with no recourse and/or means to satisfy the sums that may be allowed upon taxation.

 

Issues

  1. Whether the court had discretion to vary and/or set aside ex parte orders and judgement it had given previously.
  2. Whether by virtue that the advocate retained a lien over the client’s property elevated the advocate to the position of a party to the suit.
  3. What was the position where a sum of money was deposited in an account in the joint names of the counsel for the parties pending the hearing and determination of an appeal?

 

Civil Practice and Procedure - setting aside - unfettered discretion of the court to set aside or vary orders upon such terms as are just - duty of the court to exercise the discretion judicially upon settled principles

Advocates – lien – nature and extent of a lien in an advocate/client relationship – circumstances when such lien exists and instances when the lien extinguishes – whether an advocate had a right of lien and whether that right was enforceable

Held

  1. Discretion to vary and/or set aside ex parte orders and judgement was a wide and flexible one, and was exercised upon terms that were just. The discretion was intended to avoid injustice or hardship resulting from accident, inadvertence or excusable mistake or error, but was not designed to assist a person who had deliberately sought whether by evasion or otherwise to obstruct or delay the course of justice. In exercising the discretion the court considered among other things the facts and circumstances both prior and subsequent and all the respective merits of the parties together with any material factor that appeared to have entered into the passing of the judgement which would not or might not have been present had the judgement not been ex parte.
  2. Applications to set aside ex parte orders were by no means rare. They were of frequent occurrence and occurred due to different reasons in different cases. The aim was to do justice between the parties, the court had been given wide and unfettered discretion, but to be exercised judicially, to set aside or vary such orders inter alia in the exercise of the inherent powers of the court reserved in section 3A of the Civil Procedure Act to make such orders as was necessary for the ends of justice or to prevent abuse of the process of the court.
  3. It was therefore accepted that the court retained certain intrinsic authority in the absence of specific or alternative remedy, a residual source of power, which the court drew upon as necessary whenever it was just or equitable to do so, in particular to ensure the observance of the due process of law, to prevent abuse of its process, to do justice between the parties and to secure a fair trial between them. 
  4. The court invoked its inherent jurisdiction to prevent the abuse of the due process of the court. The jurisdiction of the court, which was comprised within the term “inherent”, was that which enabled it to fulfil itself, properly and effectively, as a court of law. The overriding feature of the inherent jurisdiction of the court was that it was part of procedural law, both civil and criminal, and not part of the substantive law; it was exercisable by summary process, without plenary trial, it was invoked not only in relation to the parties in pending proceedings, but in relation to anyone, whether a party or not, and in relation to matters not raised in litigation between the parties; it was distinguished from the exercise of judicial discretion; it was exercised even in circumstances governed by rules of the court.
  5. The inherent jurisdiction of the court enabled the court to exercise control over process by regulating its proceedings, by preventing the abuse of the process and by compelling the observance of the process. In sum, it was said that the inherent jurisdiction of the court was virile and viable doctrine and had been defined as being the reserve or fund of powers, a residual source of powers, which the court may draw upon as necessary whenever it was just or equitable to do so, in particular to ensure the observance of the due process of law, to prevent improper vexation or oppression, to do justice between the parties and to secure a fair trial between them. Residual jurisdiction was used, in special circumstances in order to put right that which would otherwise be a clear injustice. It therefore followed that this court had the power to review and vary its orders made on 2nd December, 2015 on such terms as were just.
  6. It was clear that the applicant, the Firm was not and had never been a party to the proceedings. The substance of its claim was that having acted in these proceedings, it was entitled to have its costs determined and paid period. Ordinarily, it was the client instructing the advocate that was under a legal obligation to pay the client. This was the clear explanation of the provision for only two types of bills costs – Client and Advocate Bill and Party and Party Bill of Costs.
  7. There was no Advocate and Party Bill of costs. So that even in situations where costs were awarded to a party, those costs belong to the party and not to the advocate but the advocate was entitled to retain the same by way of a lien pending the determination and payment of his costs. However by the mere virtue that the advocate retained a lien over the same did not elevate the advocate to the position of a party to the suit.
  8. The nature of a solicitor’s general retaining lien had more than once been authoritatively stated. It was a right at common law depending, it had been said, on implied agreement. It had not the character of an encumbrance or equitable charge. It was merely passive and possessory, that was to say, the solicitor had no right of actively enforcing his demand. It conferred on him merely the right to withhold possession of the documents or other personal property of his client or former client, until his client satisfied the amount of the demand.
  9. With respect to the exercise of the right to a lien, a general lien and a particular lien were both categories of a legal lien and a lien was a right at common law in one man to retain that which was rightfully and continuously in his possession belonging to another until the present and accrued claims of the person in possession were satisfied.  It was therefore clear that a lien was a possessory right as opposed to a proprietary right. Where therefore a person who would otherwise have a right of a lien over a property legally lost possession thereof it had been held that the lien was lost.
  10. The position where a sum of money was deposited in an account in the joint names of the counsel for the parties pending the hearing and determination of an appeal was that none of the parties could claim entitlement to the amount and therefore at that stage no right to a lien could be claimed. However, upon determination of the appeal any of the counsel whose client was entitled to the said fund may claim a lien thereon for the payment of his fees. This also meant that the advocate whose client was unsuccessful could not lay claim to that money as his client’s entitlement had been extinguished and a right to a lien by an advocate could only arise where his client was entitled to the money in question. The advocate must be in possession of the funds for the lien to succeed.
  11. Where the advocate was no longer, lawfully, in possession of the funds or the client’s property, the right to a lien could not be claimed. In this case it was not in doubt that the Firm ceased acting for the ex parte applicant. However, the funds that were deposited were still in account bearing the Firm’s name. Whether in those circumstances the Firm could successfully claim the right to the sum in the said account was the subject of the yet to be heard and determined application.
  12. It was clear that the Firm would only be entitled, if at all, to the sum due to the ex parte applicant who was its client. However, a lien was simply security for an advocate’s fees and an advocate was not entitled to exercise a right to a lien in respect of the whole property when his costs could only be recovered from part only of the property. In other words, the lien ought to be commensurate to the claim for fees and no more.
  13. The case could not be determined at this stage and the Firm had not indicated the amount it claimed in respect of its fees. The court ought to when to consider in such circumstances the twin overriding principles of proportionality and equality of arms that were aimed at placing the parties before the court on equal footing and see where the scales of justice lay considering the fact that it was the business of the court, so far as possible, to secure that any transitional motions before the court did not render nugatory the ultimate end of justice. The court, in exercising its discretion, would therefore always opt for the lower rather than the higher risk of injustice.
  14.  The Order given on 2nd December 2015 was varied and the stay granted would only apply to the principal sum due to the ex parte applicant as well as the interests. The Principal sum due to the beneficiary minus interests was released to the beneficiary pending the determination of the Firm’s application.
