Cost Disputes

The Law Society Cost Dispute Resolve Scheme (“Scheme”) provides a simple and expedited arbitration procedure for resolving the dispute if mediation is unsuccessful. The Scheme is to assist lawyers, their clients and third parties to resolve disputes on legal costs amicably and economically.

Under the Scheme, rules governing the mediation process and procedures are set out and kept simple to facilitate access to dispute resolution.

To apply for the scheme, please download the rules guide and forms here.
