137   Liability of legal practitioner or agent for costs in certain cases

(2)  The Registrar may in the determination:
(a)  disallow the costs as between the legal practitioner or agent and the practitioner’s or agent’s client, and
(b)  direct the legal practitioner or agent to repay to the client costs that the client has been ordered by a court or the Commission to pay to any other party, and
(c)  direct the legal practitioner or agent to indemnify any party other than the client against costs payable by the party indemnified.
(3)  Before taking action under this clause, the Registrar must give notice of the proposed action to the legal practitioner or agent and the client and give them a reasonable opportunity to make written submissions in relation to the proposed action.
(4)  The Registrar must give due consideration to any submissions so made.
