    I know this from having to go down the legal route with an agency due to this.

    I no longer work for an agency. I know from 20 years experience of enforcing this when I did......

    PS Your assumption should be that most agencies would go after the client (they have money) not the contractor.

    I'm not assuming anything. I'm telling you and the op what the solicitor I engaged to look into this said.

    It's a petty that with all your experience that you cannot offer some useful advice to the op rather than provding curt and accurate statements.

    Noted.

    My advice to the OP would be to have his client hammer out a deal with the agency. I suspect they’d get a good deal right now.
