Any idiot can, and often does, place any old rubbish on the internet.  Extreme caution should be exercised before relying on legal information found on the internet.

This website and blog contains general information and opinions based on English law and, whilst we make every effort to ensure that the contents are accurate and up to date, nothing in these pages should be construed as legal advice.  This website also contains links to external sites. 

All and any liability which might arise from these pages or information contained on external sites is hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

A number of the external links are to sites containing rules and regulations that no longer reflect the current law.  Access to this old information is important for lawyers.  It is assumed that those visiting these pages are already familiar with which rules and regulations are in force and which are not.  Although we make every effort to ensure that links are updated as appropriate, it is your responsibility to ensure the information accessed gives the relevant law as at the appropriate date.

Links are to both external sites and downloads from external sites.  Although we believe these are reliable sites, it is entirely your responsibility to ensure you have adequate IT security in place to protect against viruses, Trojan horses, spyware, etc.  We accept no responsibility for problems caused by external sites. 

The law is complex.  Legal costs law is no exception.  A man who represents himself has a fool for a client.  Much the same applies to lawyers who dabble in legal costs.  If you rely on information found on this site or sites linked to this site, don’t come crying to us if it all goes horribly wrong.  There is no substitute for obtaining specific advice on your case from professional costs advisors.

The views expressed on the Legal Costs Blog are the personal views of the writers, and any contributors to the Blog, and their views alone.
