Legal Services Commission v Henthorn: [2011] EWCA Civ 1415;  [2011] WLR (D)  343

” A claim for recoupment of alleged overpayment of money paid on account to counsel, in respect of work done under a civil legal aid certificate, was governed by regulation 100(8) of the Civil Legal Aid Regulations 1989, and the cause of action accrued from the date of the ‘assessment’ there referred to, and time did not start to run until that date, not when the work was completed by counsel.”
