Are “no win no fee solicitors” not required to update their clients and send copies of documents to their clients?
Clinical negligence case, self representation, transferred from the county court to the National Health Service Litigation Authority (NHSLA). The NHSLA informed me, by email, that an expert report was available, and asked me whether they should send the expert's report directly to me or to the solicitor. I asked them to send it to the solicitor. When I asked the solicitor to send me a copy of the expert's report she said she did not have it, and that the report was written for NHSLA i.e. for the benefit of the NHSLA alone. Isn't this rather odd? Shouldn't I see the report?
