The following Practice Compliance guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note contrasts the requirements in the SRA’s 2011 and 2019 regimes in relation to separate business and unbundling legal services. For more detailed guidance on the SRA’s 2019 separate business regime, see Practice Note: Separate business and unbundling legal services 2019.
A separate business is one that is not authorised by the SRA (or another legal regulator), which a solicitor or law firm owns, controls, actively participates in or is connected with. A non-regulated business that owns a law firm is also a separate business. For more guidance, see Practice Note: Separate business and unbundling legal services 2019—What is a separate business?
The tables shows the requirements of the 2011 Code thematically, rather than numerically.
