Costs changes

Holidays are no longer the same. Whilst on annual leave & sitting round the pool enjoying the sun, business people were on tablets and smartphones checking email, kids were updating their facebook pages and I pretended to be reading Les Miserable on my kindle. Actually I was checking on linkedin and updating my business plan for the coming with the free 3G web browser. Genius.

What’s new then for the autumn. The government announced the banning of referral fees; a multi party group of people are named to discuss one way costs shifting – without a costs lawyer insight; the Association of Costs Lawyers need extra tutors as the number of applicants goes through the roof; and back home Carlisle Legal Costing implement a shift to cloud computing with the introduction of a new case management system. Who said summer holidays were for relaxing.
