SRA,CLC, CILEx and BSB Transparency Rules

New Transparency Rules mean that law firms must publish prices for some services

"From December 2018, all regulated law firms will be required to publish information on prices they charge, and what these cover, across a number of common services." - Solicitors Regulation Authority

Whether your regulator is the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC), the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) or the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) you must now publish price information for certain public-facing services.

If you are regulated by the Bar Standards Board (BSB), then new Transparency Rules might affect you from May 2019 too.

The rule changes the regulators are making are a direct result of the recommendations set out in the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) Legal Services Market Study regarding price and service transparency.

Depending on your regulator, we have provided information on how QuoteXpress can help your law firm meet the new regulations.
