    Almost all Claimant Solicitors offer a free initial consultation to ‘potential clients’ and without fail (perhaps a few exceptions) they always appear in the bill passed off as being covered by a retrospective CFA or a Terms of Business Agreement.

    I have been pulling Claimant’s Solicitors up on this anomaly for years and copying and pasting their own website submissions in Points of Dispute. Invaribly the Claimant gets away with it at Court.

    I would have thought further support could be draw these days from paragraphs 108-110 in Motto.

    If a country-wide investigation was undertaken by the Advertising Standards Agency I believe they would probably unearth a scam doing back years costing insurers and government millions in having to pay for these ‘free’ initial interviews.
