In the interim period between submission of the rules for approval and their implementation, the BSB will consider whether a procedure should be developed to allow barristers who wish to be managers of an LDP to apply for a waiver of the relevant provisions of the Code of Conduct to enable them to do so. More information on the waiver process will be placed on the BSB’s website in due course. In the meantime if barristers have queries on the implications of the Act they are advised to check the Legal Services Act section on the BSB’s website and in particular the frequently asked questions. If the answer can’t be found there please contact the BSB’s Professional Practice Team on 020 7611 1444.
