PUBLISHED March 24, 2014

The Legal Aid Agency's refusal to allow the transfer of a legal aid contract led to the loss of 55 jobs at a collapsed Hertfordshire firm, the Gazette has been told.

Meldrum Solicitors, primarily a criminal legal aid practice, went into liquidation this month with liabilities of over £780,000.
