With councils seeking new revenue streams to fund services, how can legal services help? One route is through cost-saving measures such as shared services. But there’s also an opportunity for a more commercial approach that turns your legal services team into a law firm that wins its own business.
It sounds like a canny idea. Transform your legal services team into a generator of revenue that can be used to fund council services. Problem is, it’s complicated in practice, both from a legal and commercial perspective. What happens, for example, when your team gets into competition with local firms?
To help you navigate this maze, we’ve developed a range of practical guidance within Lexis®PSL. This helps you understand, for example, the relevant laws underpinning becoming a law firm, the rules and regulations you need to follow, the requirements in terms of PII and explanation of the SRA’s rules.
