The Gazette is reporting that Law for All, the solicitor advice agency, has gone into administration. If so, it would be the second high profile collapse of a major legal aid supplier this month, following on from the Immigration Advisory Service. Even before the implementation of a 10% fee cut, it demonstrates once again the difficulties of operating in legal aid.
UPDATE, 29th July: Law for All have now put a statement on their website confirming that they are in administration because, as a result of the difficulties of operating in legal aid, plus coming fee cuts and scope cuts, “there is no hope of a viable long-term future”. A sad day, and probably not the last.
