Last month, the Court of Appeal gave judgment in Belsner v Cam Legal Services  EWCA Civ 1387 and Karatysz v SGI Legal LLP  EWCA Civ 1388. These two cases will have a significant impact on how solicitors draft their retainers and how they bill clients, in an era of expanded Fixed Recoverable Costs. In this timely seminar, Craig Ralph
and Andrew Hogan
consider the significance of the cases, and the lessons to be drawn going forward.
