In Copper Bottomed Cert Margaret and David help a couple, Derek and Joyce Adams, who sank their entire savings into a business after being persuaded to by the shady Frank Gerrard. Soon after the company was forced into liquidation.
Meanwhile David could well find himself in a conflict of interest when Northern Counties Bank want to retain Castleton and Main at the grand sum of ten thousand pounds per annum. The problem is that the bank is also involved in the liquidation of the Adams company.
A great first act as Margaret takes on the Adams case whilst David is finalising the details of the Northern Counties Bank contract. Main is furious when he founds out about the conflict of interest, Castleton and Main really have no choice but to continue with the Adams case but by the same token really can’t afford to lose the bank contract, especially as one of their other clients may be moving their legal operations to a different part of the country.
Margaret and David are the only regulars who appear.
“I’m acting for a client, Derek Adams, he’s going to sue the Northern Counties Bank for negligence”
