Burness Paull faces full trial after legacy firm conflict breach

Lawyers involved to face professional complaint

A $210m claim against Burness Paull will go to a full Scottish civil trial after Edinburgh’s Court of Session found last month that legacy firm Paull & Williamsons had acted in breach of conflict of interest rules. While the court found that the firm did not act fraudulently, the case is now likely to move to a full hearing in early 2018.
