The term ‘unbundling’ is used in connection with all types of legal services, and involves the breaking down of a legal matter into constituent parts. Each bundle may become a matter in its own right, with a more limited scope. The unbundling of legal services can be an effective way of delivering “fast, quick and cheap” access to legal services and may operate in the client’s best interests, but the formation of a limited scope retainer agreement requires careful thought. The Law Society has published guidelines for the unbundling of services and for limited scope (unbundled) retainers, which are to be read in conjunction with the Law Society’s Costs Kit.
This seminar will address the issues arising when practitioners undertake limited scope retainers, including the management of the inherent risks, including the risks posed by technological change.
