Solicitor advocates

I spoke yesterday at the SAHCLA conference in London.The great concern was that monitoring was coming and many felt anxious that solicitors would not be treated fairly.The Attorney General ,a decent man who helped me with Jackson material,made it clear that no discrimination would be tolerated.
 Indeed,when fixed costs come into fast -track,as they will,i think solicitors will benefit since a separate allowance for counsel may not be recognised.Why disburse money when you can keep it for yourself?
