Happy Costs Lawyer’s Day!

Published April 7, 2014 by

Happy Costs Lawyer’s Day Civil Procedure Rules (Part 42), 69th update, which came into effect yesterday, has amended rights of audience.

At long last, Costs Lawyers as authorised persons under the Legal Services Act 2007, are entitled to conduct litigation.

Costs Lawyers along with Chartered Legal Executives, Barristers, Patent Attorneys and Trademark Attorneys can also go on to the Court record.

I am sure Costs Lawyers up and down the country (once having fully familiarised themselves with Part 42 of course) will be celebrating finally being given the status that they deserve.
