Delaying tactics favour no one

  • The matter of solicitors' delay tactics seem to be endemic and I wonder if there is not some training involved in how to avoid direct questions, or offering advice too soon, in order to pump up costs. When I am feeling more benevolent towards the profession I may believe that the problem occurs because they take on more work than they can handle and so the delays occur. Recent dealings with one solicitor where he failed to copy me in on letters, as promised, or consult me on the content was frustrating but then I find immature note like, timid letters were sent that did not really impress upon the recipient the importance and relevance of the case.
    Is it time the government became involved to avoid this happening. We can't all afford these exorbitant costs for, what should be, a few hours work.
