Kain Knight, one of the UK’s largest firms of costs lawyers, has been running a recruitment drive, hiring 12 new trainee Costs Lawyers since the start of the New Year.

Fuelled by the increased demand for an increasing range of costs services resulting from its successful growth strategy, Kain Knight will continue to hire for the foreseeable future.

Kain Knight is currently advertising for legal costs specialists at all levels of experience to be part of existing teams in each of its offices (Bishops Stortford, the City of London and Canterbury).

Peter Petyt, Kain Knight’s Chief Executive Officer, said:

“We are recruiting at all levels to satisfy the increased volume of work which is being generated by our highly successful business development initiatives. Our expansion strategy will continue to be implemented through organic and acquisitive growth and we therefore need good quality people to enhance our existing teams. Kain Knight remains focused on providing a broader range of services that complement our leading position in the legal costs industry.”

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
