Nov 2015: The SRA’s published paper “Innovation and Growth in Legal Services” outlines the SRA’s support for legal services providers to adapt their businesses and offer new services to clients and compete in marketplace with new entrants by the removal of regulatory barriers. The SRA’s pragmatic approach to the regulation of MDPs is an example of this, as are the removal of the restrictive provisions in the separate business regime. Khiara Law is already working with the SRA on behalf of clients who are facing technical difficulties in fully exploiting new ways of delivering services. We welcome the SRA’s Innovate initiative, and the streamlining of professional regulation. A link to the Paper is here.
