Law firm partners, directors and managers will be going in to work today (6th December) either confident that their firm is fully compliant with the price and service transparency requirements; or perhaps wondering if they’ve still got work to do?
Whilst the SRA and CLC have said that there will be no “dawn raids” come the 7th December to see if firms are compliant; they will be playing close attention to any complaints, and to any trends in complaints as identified by the Legal Ombudsman.
Firms identified as not complying with the new requirements should probably expect a conversation with their regulator as to where there may be any gaps and what actions the SRA or CLC will expect from their regulated firms.
Don’t forget that the Legal Eye team can help with all aspects of the compliance activities required. Contact us for more information or complete the form below.
