925C(4)   [ Orders]  

On an application under subsection (1), the Court may make an order:

(a) varying the agreement in such a way as to put the client in the same position, as nearly as can be done without prejudicing such a right or estate acquired before the order is made, as if the agreement had not been entered into; and

(b) declaring the agreement to have had effect as so varied at and after the time when it was originally made.

925C(5)   [ Effect of order]  

If the Court makes an order under subsection (4), the agreement is to be taken for the purposes of section 925D to have been rescinded under section 925B .
