An active assessment process – even if only for a short burst – involving necessary clarifications by Costs Appeal Committee could assist the LSC resolve their differences with the NAO dramatically. This seems to us so glaringly obvious.

We would gladly participate in such an exercise, pro bono, to assist provide the clarity of guidance practitioners need in order properly to bill their fees. We know other “names” in the costs advice world would too. Perhaps one of our LSC readers might feed this offer up the chain to the new Chief Exec.
