The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is pushing ahead with rule changes that will create different tiers of regulation within the solicitor profession. The Law Societry has urged the Legal Services Board (LSB) to reject these proposals. 

Law Society president Joe Egan said: ‘We urge the LSB as the oversight regulator to consider the best interests of the public as well as the globally recognised high standards of the UK legal services and reject the SRA’s damaging proposals to alter the rulebook for the profession.

‘We welcome simpler rules governing solicitors, but the changes proposed by the SRA would create unnecessary complexity and confusion, making it much more difficult for consumers to reach informed choices about legal services. They may also put consumers at risk and ultimately undermine trust in legal services.’
