Lord Justice Jackson wants referral fees to end

Lord Justice Jackson has completed his review of the costs of civil litigation, and wants things to change dramatically. He said referral fees to claims management companies and insurers weren't adding value to the process, and that lawyers should not be permitted to pay referral fees in respect of personal injury cases. Also he feels that success fees and after-the-event premiums should not be recoverable.

Highlights include:

- referral fees to stop

- success fees and ATE insurance premiums
