Nothing new. Since the 18th century- equitable maxim- he who comes to equity must come with clean hands.- fundamental dishonesty is just another word reinforced by recent legislation. This principle applies in all forms of civil litigation including made up or false or fabricated invoices in a Building dispute claim inter alia. Example-A builder was claiming VAT in his Invoice to increase his claim. He lied about VAT- no intention of accounting it to the authorities- he was going to pocket it!! Solicitors taking on such cases were made aware of this issue and did not check it out- could be ading and abetting and could fall foul of a Wasted Costs Order under a Non Party Costs Order. So beware the tsunami effect of Fundamental Dishonesty of a client you are going to represent especially under a CFA with ATE Insurance. Beware all of you.
