Government confirms ban on referral fees in personal injury cases
Referral fees are to be banned in personal injury cases as part of the Government's efforts to tackle the UK's so-called 'compensation culture', the Ministry of Justice has announced. The move, confirmed today (9 September), is part of the Government's efforts to drive down civil litigation costs in the UK. It comes alongside the civil litigation reforms put forward earlier this year by Lord Justice Jackson, which were included in the recent Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill (LASPO).
