Our January issue addressed a difficult decision on own interest conflicts in the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal judgment in Howell Jones LLP (11846-2018).   A recent costs judgment in Bhatti v Asghar [2019] EWHC B5  addresses a further own interest issue where a costs budget has not been filed and costs are limited to the court fees, and compares the factual matrix with the position in Mitchell v News Group Newspapers Ltd [2013] EWCA Civ 1537.  For a link to the judgment and other conflicts cases see www.legalrisk.co.uk/conflicts.
