  • Philip Jenkins, Barrister, 10 Old Square


A client who is advised that they have a strong claim in proprietary estoppel will need to know what their claim is likely to be worth before they can make an informed decision on whether to commence or to continue litigating. 

It is all well and good to tell the client that proprietary estoppel equity is inchoate and that the court will do the minimum equity to do justice but what does that actually mean in practice? In this interactive session, by reference to the case of Guest v Guest, Philip Jenkins shares his thoughts about the vexed question of what it is that the court is trying to do when satisfying a successful claimant’s equity and how that translates into giving clear and useful advice to a client.
