Legal Services Act 2007 Schedule 5

The new regulatory objective must be promoted by the legal services regulators, the Office of Legal Complaints and the Conseil des services juridiques. Currently, some commercial law firms require an ABS licence for the transitional period set out in Schedule 5, Part 2 of the Act. This includes legal disciplinary partnerships (PDPs) authorized under the Administration of Justice Amendment Act, 1985. The Legal Services Act, 2007 (LSA) sets out the „regulatory objectives” that regulators, the Office of Legal Complaints and the Legal Services Council must meet in carrying out their duties. These objectives are: to protect and promote the public interest; support for the constitutional principle of the rule of law; and promoting and maintaining professional standards. The intended effect is more effective enforcement action by regulators for legal services, as well as reduced challenges of any kind for regulators implementing proportionate oversight and enforcement measures to ensure compliance with economic crime rules. `legal partnership` means a partnership in which a qualified solicitor, a registered European lawyer or a body recognised under section 9 of the Administration of Justice Act 1985 (c. 61) is employed under the provisions of this section or section 31 of the Solicitors Act 1974 (c. (47) may practise; This publication is available at The crisis in Ukraine has highlighted the threat to economic crime in the services sector. The legal services sector was classified as highly vulnerable in the National Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Risk Assessment (2020) [note 1] [note 1]. The sector is exposed to other risks such as fraud or violations of sanctions laws. We need to ensure that legal services regulators have the powers they need in this area. The Legal Services Act 2007 (the Act) introduced the possibility for non-lawyers to invest, own and manage law firms through alternative business structures (ABS).

This regulatory system provides an opportunity to innovate in the legal services market and will allow different types of professional service providers to work together. As a result, different types of businesses will emerge, as is the case in other sectors of the economy. However, some establishments currently benefit from a transitional period during which they can carry out reserved legal activities without having to be approved as ABS (but this does not necessarily prevent them from applying for a licence now). The Government is introducing a new regulatory objective in the Legal Services Act 2007, which focuses on promoting the prevention and detection of white-collar crime. (4) These activities are all activities that are reserved within the meaning of subsection (5) and that, – „fixed date” means the date determined for the coming into force of section 13 (right to engage in a reserved lawful activity); 2. The reserved legal activities referred to in paragraph 1 shall be: In December 2014, work on licensing special bodies was postponed (after an earlier postponement in October 2013). Indeed, there is still no LA with appropriate arrangements to authorize special bodies as ABS. Therefore, at this time, there is no need to recommend to the Lord Chancellor that the transitional protection under section 23 of the Act be terminated. „Registered Trade Marks Attorney” has the same meaning as in the Trade Marks Act 1994. Implementation takes place after royal approval of the law. „[Professional title F4Suisse]” and „registered European lawyer” have the same meaning as in the European regulations.

E+W. While it can be concluded that regulators should ensure that lawyers do not violate the white-collar crime regime, this is not explicitly required by current legislation. As a result, front-line regulations may have different interpretations of the scope of their obligations with respect to white-collar crime and uneven effectiveness in monitoring and enforcing compliance. Regulators can also face challenges in their compliance activities, making monitoring and enforcement costly. Given the limited evidence of a risk to regulatory objectives or actual harm caused by these entities, the LSB decided to also postpone work to terminate the transitional protection measures in the Annex for the foreseeable future (unless there are signs of increased risk or damage in the interim). 3. In this paragraph, the terms `European regulations` and `authorised European lawyer` shall have the same meaning as in paragraph 8.

The LSB had already published two documents (in April and December 2012) discussing what appropriate LA licensing agreements for special installations might look like. The responses identified a number of policy issues that needed to be addressed before a recommendation could be made to the Lord Chancellor.

Transitional protection for special facilities will remain in place for the foreseeable future. We will inform you well in advance of future work in this area. Any transitional protection ends only on the recommendation of the LSB by order of the Lord Chancellor. We will not make the necessary recommendation until we are satisfied that there is at least one legal aid system with appropriate provisions for licensing the various agencies. a partnership or partnership that meets the conditions set out in section 279 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, 1988 (c. 48), or (2) Where P is a corporation, references to an employee of P in this subsection include references to an officer of P. a corporation to which section 276 applies, paragraph 4 of this Law; and, in the case of a Board of Patent Attorneys to which section 276(4) of this Law applies, the reference to the Director General in paragraph (4)(b) shall include a reference to the Managing Director (within the meaning of Section 276(4) of this Law) of the company.
