Court of Appeal
The Issues:In breach of the Law Society’s Code of Conduct, solicitors for the successful Claimant had failed to provide that Claimant with regular costs estimates. The defendant argued that the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct had statutory force (because it was contained in a Statutory Instrument) and any failure to comply was therefore a breach of the law which rendered any retainer unlawful and unenforceable.
