This session features the following topics:


Renu Kiran, PSG - Transparency of Fees

The Legal Services Consumer Panel (LSCP) published its “key criteria for success” which it hopes will lay the foundations for the new price and transparency regime for lawyers demanded by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

The CMA’s call for law firms to publish prices and complaints records prompted the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) to announce in January that it was working on plans to require law firms to publish prices for conveyancing, divorce and private client work. We will discuss the outcome of the CMA’s investigation and its impact on Legal Services.
