On 21 March 2012, The Law Society issued a practice note for legal aid solicitors who are concerned about receiving late payments from the Legal Services Commission (LSC).
Delays in LSC payments for civil licensed work are not uncommon and can create serious cash-flow problems for firms. Firms may have valid claims for debt and/or damages or interest against the LSC for delayed payments.
This practice note sets out ways in which firms may be able to pursue claims for debt, and/or damages or interest against the LSC for delayed payments.
