"John Spencer, director of Spencers Solicitors, says that, while there might be fundamental differences in terms of what each side would like the provisions to be, frustrations are shared. 'There's a lack of clarity and joined-up thinking. Jackson said his reforms were intended to be a series of interlocking measures,' he says. 'There are also issues beyond Jackson; for example, the introduction of ABSs and their impact on the pending referral fee ban.'"
