No, said Mr. Justice Bigham; and the bankrupt's trustee in bankruptcy successfully claimed the goods by virtue of the reputed ownership clause. (B. 151.) R Is an oral agreement between a solicitor and his client as lo the costs of an action binding? Clark v. Joseph (T. 617). No, said the Divisional Court, distinguishing the case of Jennings v. Johnson (L. R. 8 O. P. 425). Such an agreement is not actionable, owing to sect. 4 of the Solicitors Act, 1870, which enacts that " an attorney or solicitor may make an agreement in wriling with his client respecting the amount and manner of payment for services, fees, charges, or disbursements in respect of business done or to be done by such attorney or solicitor... either at the same or a greater or at a less rate as or than the rate he would otherwise be entitled to be remunerated." In the above case the agreement between the parties was, that if the action the solicitor was bringing for his client was successful, the client should pay no costs to the solicitor, leaving the latter to recover his costs from the other party, and if the action was unsuccessful the client should only pay to the solicitor such costs as the latter would have been entitled to receive from the other party if the action had been successful. The action terminated successfully for the client, and tho agreement that he was not to be liable to pay any costs was held to be void for want of writing.
