The alternative to a referral fee ban?
Dominic Regan, the Association of Costs Lawyers’ new special adviser, in an article about to appear in the New Law Journal, will suggest that those opposing the introduction of a ban on referral fees are making a mistake. Some solution is required to excessive costs in RTA claims and the alternative might well be an increase in the small claim track to £5,000. In Dominic’s words: “No costs, no referral fees and, oh yes, no solicitors. Is that what they want? It is what they might get”.
