The emergence of alternative business structures (ABSs) is set to have a profound effect on how legal advice will be delivered in the future.
There are new entrants to the market who bring with them war chests of funds; brand strength; ‘bricks and clicks’ outlets and sophisticated service delivery. These new entrants are well placed to offer integrated large-scale commercial legal solutions.
Compli has an impressive track record in this sphere. Whether law firms or others are seeking a project manager for the lengthy application process, assistance reviewing a draft application or advice appealing an SRA decision, our specialist team is here to help. We have secured ABS licences and waivers for numerous firms and our holistic offering is bolstered by access to Weightmans’ comprehensive portfolio of legal services.
We act for solicitors, barristers, in-house lawyers and other professionals seeking to establish an ABS regulated by the SRA. In addition, we assist in applications to other licensing authorities such as the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
