Master Gordon-Saker, the Senior Costs Judge, speaking at the Civil Justice Council seminar on the government’s post-implementation review of part 2 of LASPO, said - “One of the unintended consequences of LASPO is that there is a growing industry in challenging solicitor and own client bills, in part because a surprising number of solicitors seem to think that the success fee payable under the CFA by the client is fixed at 25% of the damages and that there is absolutely no need to make any assessment of the risk or to apply the resulting percentage to the base costs that were actually incurred. “I think that the Law Society could do a bit of educating on that but I also think now may be the time to review the Solicitors Act 1974 and in particular part III, which deals with remuneration.” For the full article click the link above.
