Legal Profession Act 2004 (NSW) : costs agreement between law practice and client - whether binding on non-associated third party payer
Jackson, Sheryl (2009) Legal Profession Act 2004 (NSW) : costs agreement between law practice and client - whether binding on non-associated third party payer. Proctor, 29(3), pp. 50-52.
The decision in the New South Wales Supreme Court in Boyce v McIntyre  NSWSC 1218 involved determination of a number of issues relating to an assessment of costs under the Legal Profession Act 2004 (NSW). The issue of broad significance was whether a non-associated third party payer must pay the fixed fee that was agreed between the law practice and the client. The court found that the client agreement did not form the basis of assessing costs for the non-associated third party payer.
