“A High Court judge has thrown into question the legitimacy of a £16m bill charged by Dechert to FTSE 100 mining giant ENRC.

The ruling permits ENRC to have the bill assessed and gives a green light to the company and its lawyers, Signature Litigation, to pursue Dechert for recovery of its costs.

Dechert billed ENRC for around £16m for 23 months of work, with partner David Neil Gerrard leading for the client.”
