Adoko v Office for the Supervision of Solicitors: Admn 15 Jul 2003

The applicant had been made subject of an order preventing his employment as a clerk by any firm of solicitors. A costs order accompanied that order. The order was later the subject of a default costs certificate. He sought to appeal that certificate.
Held: The correct and only way to challenge such an order was application under CPR47.12. In any event there was required to be shown evidence demonstrating ‘a good reason why detailed assessment proceedings should continue’ (CPR47.12(2)). No such reason was adduced. An appeal was not a possible route of challenge. Appeal dismissed.
