The article reports that the British Bar Council and the Law Society were in conflict in the Court of Appeal regarding a case that could affect the future of the bar's direct access procedure. The Law Society supported the HM Revenue and Customs' (HMRC) appeal over the costs payable to Andre Agassi's accountants Tenon over the amount of tax payable on his sponsorship earnings. Tenon and the Bar Council's argument was that HMRC's move would discourage the use of a scheme designed to save money.
