John Spencer writes for Law Society Gazette on the failure ban referral fees which will undermine reforms.
"It appears that referral fees have been saved from the chopping block in the government’s new Justice Bill, unveiled today. Sadly, I believe this botched approach will undermine the aim to reform civil justice in the UK."
"Consumers are generally unaware that most insurers and claims management companies make a substantial amount of money out of the personal injury system by charging 'referral fees' – where an accident victim's case is sold to a solicitor for hundreds of pounds."
