Over-charging by City firms

By on Oct 3, 2011 | 2 comments

An interesting article from costs draftsman Jim Diamond on legal costs overcharging by City firms recently appeared on the Legal Week website. This included the following example:

“The partner of a major law firm who was invited to a client’s corporate golf day. The partner subsequently charged the client eight hours at his full charge-out rate. The purchase of a pair of £80 golf shoes on the day was also charged, to the client’s chagrin.”


  1. I would imagine that the client changed solicitors.
