Personal injury lawyers hit out yesterday (Wednesday 8 August) at the Law Society’s stance on referral fees.
Speakers at the launch of London Accident Link, including Louise Christian of Christian Khan Solicitors, condemned the society for allowing referral fees, saying they compromise ethical standards.
A postal ballot of members is currently underway following a resolution brought at the society’s annual general meeting in July condemning referral fees and asking for a renewed ban.
The event formally launched London Accident Link – a chain of law firms providing help to accident victims.
Other speakers at the event included Denise Kitchener, chief executive of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers; Marvin Simons of Seddons, president of the link; and the novelist Nina Bawden. Bawden’s husband Austen Kark was killed in the Potters Bar rail crash in May 2002.
