A few months ago the MoJ announced that it would begin its review of MedCo earlier than anticipated. The announcement was wrongly interpreted by some as evidence of the MoJ losing faith in MedCo, only a few months after it had gone live. However, those attending the ABI’s “Next steps in tackling the compensation culture” event last Tuesday were left in no doubt that the MoJ would be standing by MedCo and was not about to cut and run. Taking part in a panel Q & A at that event, MoJ Deputy Director for Civil Justice, Richard Mason, stated that MedCo was “shining a light” on practices in the market and disagreed that MedCo had been implemented too soon, saying that there had been an urgent need to address the issues that had led to MedCo coming into being.
