Today the Legal Services Board (LSB) has published an updated assessment of the Costs Lawyer Standards Board’s (CLSB) regulatory performance. CLSB is the regulator of Costs Lawyers in England and Wales.
In response, Claire Green, chair of the Association of Costs Lawyers, said: “We recognise the importance of a strong and capable regulator for the reputation of, and confidence in, the Costs Lawyer profession. The CLSB should be commended for the work that has gone into meeting the LSB’s requirements, which reinforces the value of solicitors and others instructing fully trained and regulated Costs Lawyers.
“Our working relationship with the CLSB has never been better and the recent appointment of David Heath as chair of the CLSB shows that its trajectory continues upwards.”
