War of Words

The first foray in this conflict, a battle of Press Releases, has begun. The Law Society’s opened up with this one from which the following seems the most significant extract:

“The Society asked the Legal Services Commission (LSC) for a draft of the contract it would be inviting firms to sign, and to meet with the Society and the other representative groups to discuss the terms. The LSC rejected that reasonable request, and has chosen instead to send the contract direct to firms without any discussion”.

The LSC’s entirely predictable rebuttal now follows.
We have commented previously on the LSC implicitly blaming the Law Society for the current pass rather than reflecting upon their own responsibility in this regard.
Once more we are left pondering how a Peer Reviewer would rate legal advice to sign this contract in these circumstances?
