Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013
With over a decade of fairly fundamental regulatory challenges brought about by the Access to Justice Act 1999, s.58 Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 (Conditional Fee legislation) and more recently LASPO (Jackson and DBAs), not to mention the overhaul of the Solicitors Code of Conduct to its present guise of the Handbook in October 2011, one would be forgiven for thinking that the solicitors profession is already sufficiently regulated without yet more intricate legislation. However, it seems not. It is now necessary for the profession to get to grips with this latest round of regulation bestowed upon the profession. On 13 June 2014 the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (" The CCR 2013") come into force.

Mr Justice Coulson has handed down his lengthy judgment on the costs matters arising from the claim made by Greenwich Millennium Village Limited ("GMVL").

Layard Horsfall Article: First judgment in a judicial review of the Legal Ombudsman
On 20 December 2013 judgment was handed down in the first judicial review of a decision of the Legal Ombudsman (“LeO”) to reach a substantive hearing. The judgment will be of interest to lawyers and complainants wishing to challenge unappealable decisions of LeO. It is particularly (though not only) relevant to LeO decisions which direct a reduction in fees. This is an area which, in view of the absence of a limit on the amount by which LeO can reduce fees, has caused particular controversy.

Costs Newsletter: Six Months In
We are now six months into the Jackson reforms. Most would agree that it is really too early to tell what impact the reforms have had; with many of the reforms being subject to transitional arrangements which necessarily means that it will be towards the beginning of 2014 before we start seeing measurable impacts of the Jackson reforms. That having been said, the reforms have already injected a good deal of challenging questions into civil procedure generally.
