The failure of a solicitor to give the client an estimate of costs in accordance with the Solicitors' Costs Information and Client Care Code did not render the contract of retainer unenforceable and it was a question for the discretion of the judge assessing costs in any particular case whether to take into account any failure by the receiving party's solicitor to provide an estimate as required by the code.

[2005] EWCA Civ 1206
