The majority of those in the costs industry will be more than familiar with Tony Girling, at least by reputation.
Tony is former President of the Law Society, sat for many years as a High Court Costs Assessor and was a founder member of the Supreme Court Costs Office Practitioners Group.
He is current probably best known for his regular costs conferences through CLT and for his unrivalled knowledge of developments in the field of legal costs. He has been a giant in a costs world of pygmies.
It is therefore with no small element of regret to report his retirement from all things legal with CLT’s Assessing and Recovering Costs in 2009 Conference being his last "public appearance".
GWS wish him a happy retirement and all the best for the future.
