Good Result

We got news of another positive outcome to an “appeal” yesterday evening. I will, indeed must, spare you the detail but essentially it involved Duty Solicitor scheme compliance. Our other most recent case was similarly to do with Duty rota issues. Both cases could have theoretically left us conflicted (indeed I might find myself on the other side of the same argument in a third which is brewing), and one of the 2 involved a clash between competitor firms.
The LSC has an unenviable role in such cases, effectively becoming a referee in a local dispute. Perhaps that is why they were so inflexible with regard to the most recent case. They do however self-define their investigative powers in such matters,quite widely, and operate without any clear rules as to procedural conduct.
As the LSC “evolve” the market it may well be that such events become more frequent.
