With so many interests to serve, the right path to take is not always clear. The Law Society is responsible for assisting all solicitors in the state deliver services that are of the highest professional and ethical standards.
Costs are one of the most heavily regulated aspects of practising law. The Law Society has an educational and regulatory responsibility to ensure solicitors comply with the laws relating to costs.

This approach encourages solicitors to view regulatory compliance, not as an authoritative burden, but as a means to generate client satisfaction and drive profitability.
