Legal profession

The Law Society has published a new guidance page to help lawyers prepare for the end of the transition period. The guidance page, ‘Preparing for the end of the transition period’, highlights key steps to be taken by solicitors ahead of the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020 ‘whether an agreement is reached on the UK-EU future relationship or not’. It also includes links to a range of government and regulator resources that should be of assistance to solicitors and firms. See: LNB News 21/08/2020 67.
