Leonard Curtis Rescue & Recovery can confirm that Just Costs Solicitors Limited was placed into administration on 25 January 2019, with Julien Irving and Andrew Poxon jointly appointed.

Just Costs Solicitors Limited operated from offices in Manchester and London, and provided costs draughtsman services as well as legal services.

The Company had experienced difficulties as a result of the regulatory and financial pressures cur-rently being placed on the sector. The Company has also suffered from cashflow issues.

Regretfully the administrators have made 26 employees redundant.

Prior to our appointment, all client matters were transferred to other registered practices, namely Clear Law Solicitors, Burcher Jennings, Civil & Commercial Costs Lawyers Limited, KWLC Legal Costs Limited, Simpson Sissons & Brooke LLP and Partners in Costs Limited.

Julien Irving commented: “Whilst the number of redundancies was unavoidable, we are pleased to say that we have ensured that approximately 1,000 client matters were seamlessly transferred to regulated practices and therefore avoided SRA intervention.

Leonard Curtis Business Rescue & Recovery is part of the Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group.
