Win Some Lose Some

Another case in favour of the LSC with regard to recovery of payments on account – UPOA in the vernacular. I have not read the case in detail but following on from Henthorn this pretty much gives the LSC the green light to chase costs back to the dawn of time. It is sobering, in many ways, when you think that 1992 was 20 years ago but cases of this age were the subject of the latter case. In today’s case some of the files were even older.

The practical impact of this on current UPOA activity remains to be seen however we will have little to shield us from recovery except a few tattered ledgers and mouldy fee notes.
