Legal disciplinary practices and barrister partnerships

The BSB, as mentioned in the December edition of BSB News, has issued a consultation paper and proposed amendments to the Code in respect of barrister involvement in SRA regulated bodies.

The consultation paper also sets out provisional views on whether barrister-only partnerships should be permitted and if so whether the cab-rank rule should apply to those barristers within the partnership. Please refer to our website under Standards and Guidance, Legal Services Act 2007, where we have details about the Act, answers to frequently asked questions and a
link to our consultation documents.
