The Legal Extortion Racket Summary

The Legal Extortion Racket by Jim Diamond

JIM has had a 40 years career in the law. During that period, he worked as an outdoor clerk for Weightman's, a small legal firm in Liverpool, at the end of the 1970s and moved to London in the early 1980s. He worked in-house for Clifford Turner (now Clifford Chance) during the 1980s and Allen & Overy during the 1990s. With Clifford Turner and Allen & Overy being two of the top five City of London law firms, he spent most of my time working on some of the highest legal costs, disputes, and budgets over a two-decade period. Throughout the last two decades, he has worked independently. With a client base ranged from individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to billionaires and corporate clients such as Goldman Sachs. He has worked on many legal costs dispute cases throughout the UK. The different systems across England, Wales, Scotland and the Channel Islands all suffer, from his view, the same problems, including a lack of transparency and a lack of regulatory controls and protocols to protect the client from overcharging. The book also looks at Jim's life journey from a comprehensive school education in inner city Liverpool in 70s to publishing stats on the UK legal market place which have over two decades been published worldwide. The book looks at specific cases and his fights with the legal regulators in the UK. Some cases are absolutely shocking and bring shame on the legal profession and legal regulators. To balance the book, he has added chapters which give a personal account of why/who he is.
